President Biden has proposed an elimination of step up in basis and an increase in the capital gains tax; how much will this impact family businesses?
See the example below.
A $50 million family business could be subject to a $82 million estate tax after the death of second generation, and an additional capital gains tax of $97 million for a total tax of $182 million when the business is sold by the 3rd generation to pay the estate tax!!!
