The main tax bracket would be 0.1% or $1,000 per million per year. For example, a person who owns a boat with three income assets and a total value of two million must pay an additional $1,000 on his tax return, because the first million is not taxed.

As far as the “tax on large estates” is concerned, it targets assets of more than a million. “Anything over $1 million in net assets will be taxed at 35%. Thus, if a person makes a bequest of one million dollars, he or she will not pay any additional taxes,” the party explains.
