T10-0206 - Administration's Proposal to Current Policy; Extend Preferential Rates on Gains and Dividends to Top 2 Tax Brackets; Baseline: Expanded Current Law; Distribution by Cash Income Percentile, 2012

This is a distribution table by income quintiles which shows the effects of a proposal where the 15% tax rate is extended to the tax payers in the top two income tax brackets, relative to a current law baseline where the 2009 estate tax law and all the 2001-03 individual income tax cuts, barring the high-income provisions are extended. The baseline and proposal both adjust the threshold of the 36 percent bracket in addition to indexing it for inflation after 2009.
