This is a distribution table by income levels which show the effects of a proposal which extends the 15 percent rate on capital gains and qualified dividends, retains the 20% rate for the top two brackets and repeals the 8 and 18 percent rate for gains on assets held for five or more years. The baseline is current law with an AMT patch, extension of the 10, 25, and 28 percent tax rates, marriage penalty relief, child tax credit, child and dependent care credit, and student loan interest deduction.
