Almost all of the Bush Administration’s tax cuts will expire at the end of 2010 and the alternative minimum tax is encroaching on a growing number of middle-income Americans. Policymakers must come to grips with future U.S. tax policy and the implications of reform for the economy, government revenue, and income distributions. What should be the future of U.S. tax policy?
