Heidi Heitkamp Launches Saving America’s Family Enterprises (SAFE) to Say No to the Double Death Tax
U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) today announced the launch of the Saving America’s Family Enterprises (SAFE), a non-profit educational organization advocating against the imposition of new transfer taxes such as the Sensible Taxation and Equity Promotion (STEP) Act, which would tax the gifting of homes, small businesses, family farms and other assets to family members upon the death of a loved one. As part of the launch, SAFE is announcing an initial six-figure paid media campaign to educate persuadable voters, as well as new polling data demonstrating the broad, bipartisan opposition to new transfer taxes such as the STEP Act. The data released today shows that 85 percent of all voters agree that the double death tax would affect hardworking middle-class families the most.
