Boston Univ. School of Law Working Paper No. 09-42

Abstract:     
A recent temporary addition to the standard deduction distributes a limited tax benefit to a subset of nonitemizing taxpayers based on real property tax payments. The provision sacrifices some of the standard deduction’s simplicity, costs more than a billion dollars annually and makes inequitable distinctions. Congress should fail to renew it.
