Abstract

The Bush administration is said to be considering several new tax cuts, including increasing the deductible amount of capital losses, reducing capital gains tax rates, indexing capital gains for inflation, raising contribution limits for IRAs and 401(k)s, and reducing taxes on dividends. This paper examines the rationale and likely effects of these proposals.
