  1. Hi Mike,

    “Are we saying that getting rich is a bad thing, or simply that dying is?”

    The probate ‘tax’ rate is about 1%, so I don’t think that’s going to have much impact on most people’s aspirations. However, I do agree that it’s an underhand stealth tax. Personally I’d much rather see IHT cancelled and all inheritance taxed as income, but that’s unlikely to happen.

    • Mike Rawson Mike Rawson says:

      1% too much for me – the money has already been taxed on the way in. IHT is an abomination.

      Probate fees should match the worked involved – the existing system (£200) was fine.

      You ducked the question about whether getting rich is now a bad thing. We need to fix society from the bottom up, not the top down.
