An interesting read. Though with the Australia example the tax was being REMOVED as of a certain date where as the new death tax is being IMPLEMENTED as of a certain date. The Australia example proves that people were willing to fudge death dates of people who had already died on forms and the like to ensure they got in under the new regime. If they'd survived longer it wouldn't have been an issue. That's why i'm not so sure you can extrapolate from that study that in the current situation people will be deliberately dying earlier. It's one thing to lie on a form, it's another thing to deliberately die early or pull the plug...
