A letter-writing campaign by farmers to change inheritance tax legislation has had limited success.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Franklin Co.;


Passage of the balanced budget bill means changes in the total tax exemption farmers are allowed when their family business is passed down from one generation to the next.
Farmers have complained the inheritance tax is a burden and sometimes drives a family out of the business.
New legislation will eventually increase the previous 600-thousand dollar exemption to one-point-three million dollars.
But, some area farmers fear it's too little too late.
