How is the Briefing Book Organized?

The briefing book is organized into four topic areas: background, key elements of the U.S. tax system, ways to reform it, and taxes at the state and local level. Links at the end of each entry take you to related entries, references containing additional information, and revenue and distributional tables. The Glossary link on the left side of each page takes you to a chapter containing definitions of many technical terms related to taxation and budgeting.
