A poll about the inheritance tax in the U.S.

A long time ago, when there were no laws against killing bald eagles, someone made a sculpture that included a stuffed bald eagle.

A few years ago, the owner of the sculpture died, and someone inherited the sculpture.

Because of today’s laws against the trade in bald eagles, it is illegal for the person who inherited the sculpture to sell it. Because of this ban on selling it, Christie’s auction house has appaised the value of the sculpture as zero. However, the IRS has decided that the sculpture is worth  $65 million, and has sent the owner an inheritance tax bill of  $29.2 million.

Whose appraisal do you agree with?
