Compare the Presidential Candidates’ Tax Plans
December 12, 2011
How does Mitt Romney compare to Ron Paul on taxes? Does Newt Gingrich have a savvier plan than Michele Bachmann? With our new Presidential Candidate Tax Plan Comparison, you can look at the tax policies of presidential candidates side-by-side and evaluate for yourself.
Information is included on the following candidates for President: Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain (campaign currently suspended), Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum. As candidates leave the campaign during the primary process, details of the plans they advocated will remain online for comparison purposes.
Also, keep your eyes open for the Tax Foundation’s forthcoming report card on the candidates’ tax plans, in which we grade each candidate’s plan on an A through F scale, as measured against the principles of sound tax policy.
