Detailed Analysis of Presidential Candidate’s Tax Plans

The sixth Republican presidential debate is already upon us, and the candidates are again expected to focus on business and the economy. Tax policy has been a driving topic in these debates, and several of the candidates have issued comprehensive tax reform plans.
