Come to Ohio’s Capitol for a Rally to Repeal the Estate Tax!

February 15, 2011

Are you sick and tired of the crippling tax burden in Ohio?

Now you have a great opportunity to make your voice heard this Wednesday, February 16th at the State Capitol, by attending the Taxpayer Rally to End Ohio’s Estate Tax!

In addition to having the 7th-highest state and local tax burden in the country, Ohio residents are subjected to a burdensome and immoral “estate tax,” better known as the death tax. The way the tax is currently set up, any Ohioan who passes away with an estate larger than roughly $338,000 must pay this levy. This extremely low threshold bilks thousands of middle-class homeowners and families while they grieve for lost loved ones. Now you can join with NTU and our friends at Citizens United to End Ohio’s Estate Tax and the Ohio Farm Bureau to end this awful injustice for good!

Here are the details of the event:

  • What: Taxpayer Rally to End Ohio’s Estate Tax, including speakers and more!
  • When: Wednesday, February 16, 2011 from 1:15 PM to 1:45 PM
  • Where: West Lawn of the Ohio State Capitol, Columbus (Rain location: Renaissance Hotel’s Grand Ballroom at 50 N. 3rd Street, Columbus)

Please, take a little time during your lunch on Wednesday to attend this event with fellow patriots from across the state who want to take back the government that once served taxpayers rather than special interests. You are welcome to bring signs and posters, but please do not use signs with metal or wooden spikes or stakes at the rally as they are prohibited. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Beth Vanderkooi at 614-246-8255 or BVanderkooi@ofbf.org.

See you there!

Sincerely,

Your Grassroots Action Team at NTU
