An elderly widowed gentleman has been given the bad news from his doctor - he has less than six months to live. He's worked hard all his life and has amassed a fairly decent sum of money. He has a married daughter and wants to leave all his money to her and her husband but he knows that the inheritance tax will be hundreds of thousands of dollars.
So what can he do to reduce the confiscatory inheritance tax?
If he lives in a state that recognizes same sex marriages, here's what he can do:
1. He tells his daughter and son-in-law to get a divorce, they do - legal.
2. He then marries his former son-in-law - legal.
3. When he dies, his "spouse/former son-in-law" inherits his money tax-free (note that there is no inheritance tax between spouses) - Legal
4. The former son-in-law now re-marries his former wife and the result is that they have inherited a fairly decent sum of money TAX FREE! -legal
Vote no on Proposition 8 and put the shaft to the inheritance tax!
