Eric Fingerhut on Tax Reform


Keep estate tax and dividends tax

Source: 2004 Congressional National Political Awareness Test Aug 17, 2004

New ideas to stimulate the economy

In order to fund other, less important tax initiatives, the Congress has repeatedly voted to let the Federal R&D tax credit expire. This practice discourages long-term research commitments. It is time to make the credit permanent. Fingerhut will propose a plan that offers a zero capital gains rate for all investments made in start-up businesses. Also, he would call for the full deductibility of student loan repayments from Federal taxes, including principal and interest.
