The Lose-Lose Job of Cutting Your Top Tax Breaks

April 27, 2012 • The Hamilton Project • Tax Policy


The Fiscal Times cites data from a forthcoming Hamilton Project document showing eliminating certain tax expenditures would have different distributional impacts on different income brackets.  The data comes from an upcoming Hamilton Project document, “A Dozen Economic Facts about Tax Reform,” which will be released at a policy forum next week that will highlight the economic context for tax reform and the economic criteria that should be used when evaluating tax reform options.  Former Council of Economic Advisers Chair Martin Feldstein and Lawrence H. Summers, former Assistant to the President for Economic Policy and former U.S. Treasury Secretary, will kick off the event with a discussion of the broad economic case for tax reform.  Event information and registration are available here.
