Several Opinions and Refutations Against the Levy of Inheritance Tax

Lifeng Yang


The main reasons for opposing the levy of inheritance tax can be attributed to the belief that the cost of levying
inheritance tax is high, the supporting system for levying inheritance tax is not in place, the levying of inheritance tax is not
in line with the trend of international taxation reform, and the tax administration level of tax authorities cannot meet the
requirements for levying. This article analyzes these reasons and criticizes them. Now is not the time to discuss whether to
levy, but to demonstrate how to speed up the legislative process of inheritance tax and how to link up relevant systems as
soon as possible.
