The Top Ten Tax Breaks (or “Expenditures”) According to the Joint Committee on Taxation

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

NOTE: It’s Spring Break week for us so I’ll be away from the computer much of this week. I wanted to share this list of the top ten tax breaks according to the Joint Committee on Taxation that I found in yesterday’s WSJ. I think it’s funny that they consider them expenditures.

The article also says that the survey respondents feel that it would take $7 million in order for them to feel comfortable. Although my wife and I aren’t millionaires, I can’t really say that having a […]

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

NOTE: This is a re-worked post from earlier this morning. I misread the Wall Street Journal article and thought they were talking about total cost of production and not just component cost.
