How Should the Briefing Book be Used?
The Tax Policy Briefing Book is not like other books; few if any readers will start with the first brief and read straight through to the conclusion. Instead you can pick a topic, read the basic information on it, and then follow the links to related entries in the briefing book or to supporting data tables and publications.
"Print" buttons on every entry allow you to print out that entry. Of course, we plan to continually expand and update the online book, so you may want to check online for new material from time to time. For example, we plan to add a new chapter devoted to the tax proposals offered by the presidential candidates. And we will be adding more topics and features to the book after the 2008 election, when the contours of the tax policy debate become clearer.
