Tax Foundation Releases Data on Marriage Penalty

Wednesday, April 28, 2004

With proposed legislation pending on Capitol Hill to make permanent the 2001 Tax Act's marriage penalty relief provisions, the Tax Foundation has released a timely study profiling the couples who would benefit from that relief. They conclude that the failure to enact the pending legislation would have the biggest impact on lower-income couples. For example:

Income Range..............% Increase in Tax Burden If No Marriage Penalty Relief

$10,000-$15,000.................563%
$15,000-$20,000....................69%
$20,000-$25,000....................21%
