Does the temporary extension of Bush-era tax rates reduce uncertainty?

Tuesday 4 January 2011

This is the question addressed by Jason Fichtner and Katelyn Christ in their working paper for the Mercatus Center. They explain that a real tax reform is necessary, rather than the current last-minute decision for extension. It is important for Congress to focus on implementing stable low marginal tax rates that do not discourage working, saving, or investing and provide taxpayers with some degree of certainty to make growth promoting economic decisions.
