2008 Presidential Candidates’ Tax Proposals

2008 Presidential Candidates’ Tax Proposals June 23, 2008

While researching about tax proposals by each candidate, I came across the Tax Policy Center by the Urban Institute and Brookings Institution. I have only glanced through it for a couple of hours and they seem to have very helpful information. If you are like me and you prefer to see charts and tables rather than text when it comes down to numbers, then this seems to be a good resource. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the Obama and McCain tax proposals:

They also have papers on how federal tax policy could improve the living standards of working families, which seem worth our time as well.  Morning’s Minion has already posted on the candidates and their respective tax policies based on the Tax Policy Center numbers.

Are you familiar with the Tax Policy Center? What do you think? Do you recommend any other resources on tax policy and research?
