Should inheritance tax be scrapped?
At the moment, only estates worth more than 300,000 pounds are liable for the tax. The government says that means the levy is paid on only about 6 percent of estates.
However the Tories say soaring property prices mean many more people, who wouldn’t be described as rich, will find themselves in that bracket in the future.
A recent poll found the public rated the tax as the most unpopular levy they had to pay, worse even than council tax.
What do you think? Is the tax an unfair punishment or will scrapping it mean the rich will get richer?
