On average, 84 percent of farm assets are land, machinery, and equipment. Burdensome estate taxes can cause the loss or break-up of family farms when heirs are forced to sell assets to pay the tax and/or administrative costs.

Elimination of the state estate tax, coupled with significant federal estate tax reforms, will allow additional generations to keep their land in farming, strengthen the rural economy and preserve Ohio’s agricultural heritage.

Take action now to call or e-mail your state legislators via Ohio Farm Bureau's on-line Legislative Action Center.

ONLINE EXTRAS:

Read an Ohio Farm Bureau statement on the estate tax.

Look up your legislators' contact information by visiting the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate on-line directories.

Talking points, a sample e-mail and a copy of HB 3 are also available online.
