  •  A 1% transfer tax would be ruinious. (0+ / 0-)

    Full disclosure, it would destory me personally but forget that.

    It would mean that (for the sake of easy math) a retiree with $100,000 in principal earning 6% interest a year over 30 years would end up with $140,000 less then if the tax had not existed.  The difference between 570 and 450.

    That is a massive loss to a retirement account.
