Policy Briefing on Federal Income Taxes

Presenters

Scott Hodge

President, Tax Foundation

William McBride

Chief Economist, Tax Foundation

On January 1, 2013, a large and sweeping tax hike will take effect as the largest single part of the Fiscal Cliff. From an increase in the estate tax to tax increase on small businesses, the impending threat of new taxes and increases in existing taxes could be catastrophic. The Tax Foundation has simulated the potential economic effects of the Fiscal Cliff.

This briefing will provide a glimpse into the damaging effects of the looming tax hikes and to offer greater clarity for the path to economic growth.
