An Inheritance Tax is a policy where an individual's wealth and property are taxed after their death before it is distributed among their descendents.

This tax is favored by Socialists for the positive impact it has on Equality; taxing inheritances prevents a single family from rising too high in the social order by simply amassing wealth and property throughout generations. Naturally, the wealthy, the retired, the conservatives, and those that earn Middle Incomes don't want to lose their money after their deaths. The tax also lowers the amount of High Earnings people can receive.
