Tax Evasion

November 2005
New Republic;11/21/2005, Vol. 233 Issue 21, p7
This article focuses on U.S. President George W. Bush's efforts at tax reform. A tax reform proposal released by a presidentially appointed panel was quickly criticized by fellow Republicans, even though, according to the author, the proposal had enough progressive elements to start a needed bipartisan debate on tax reform. The panel recommended two major changes: eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax, which will end up burdening middle-income families, and capping mortgage deductions.
