In other words, the tax is being paid on a legacy for which tax already has been paid. It's a cycle that repeats. Taxes are imposed repeatedly and again over the next generation until somebody puts an end to it. If you are looking to end the cycle, it is imperative that each one of you start by writing a Last Will as well as a Testament.
