Abstract:     
In this brief commentary, I argue that, now that we have no meaningful estate tax for the vast masses of even wealthy individuals and families, it is time to call for an end to stepped-up basis on death and to start doing something, somehow, to shut down the typical tax planning of the wealthy.
