The article criticizes the tax provisions of U.S. President George W. Bush's proposals for the fiscal 2007 budget. Treasury Department officials argued that the budget proposal contains carryover provisions such as relaxed rules for 501(c)(3) bonds, retirement and lifetime savings accounts, and alternative minimum tax. Treasury spokesman Tony Fratto asserted that they will conduct a deliberate probe into the tax provisions of the proposals.
