The American Society of Appraisers and over 100 other business groups and organizations sent a letter to Rep. Neal (D-Mass.) and Rep. Wyden (D-Ore.) urging exclusion of any tax proposals that would impact family businesses and farms, such as eliminating discounts for lack of control or marketability. Proposals such as taxing unrealized gains, halving the estate tax exemption, limits to grantor trusts, and changes to valuation discounts are not in the current framework of the Build Back Better Act—for now, the ASA points out.

Extra: Will Frazier (Weaver) has an article on the resiliency of valuation discounts for family limited partnerships despite ongoing efforts to eliminate them.
