Reducing the Budget Deficit: Tax Policy Options [April 26, 2011]   [open pdf - 424KB]

"Tax reform and deficit reduction are two issues being considered by the 112th Congress. It may be possible to design tax reform policies that complement deficit reduction goals. In recent months, a number of groups have published various plans for tackling the nation's growing deficits. This report analyzes various revenue options for deficit reduction, highlighting proposals made by the President's Fiscal Commission and the Debt Reduction Task Force. Others, such as House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and the Obama Administration, have noted the importance of tax reform as part of a deficit reduction plans. These plans, however, do not provide the same level of detail as the Fiscal Commission and Debt Reduction Task Force, and are therefore not reviewed in detail as part of this report."
