New Taxes on High Income Earners
For 2018 Obama’s budget reintroduces several tax proposals that aim to raise more tax revenue from high-income earners. This is where the new budget proposal gets most of its revenue.
This budget is designed to limit the value of itemized deductions for high-income taxpayers, raising approximately $600 billion in new revenue.
Taxpayers will only be allowed to take itemized deductions against a 28 percent income tax rate, rather than in the tax bracket they actually fall. In turn this reduces the value of itemized deductions and boosts the amount of taxes that are paid by higher income taxpayers.
The Fair Share Tax also known as "the Buffet Rule" is a 30 percent minimum tax on high-income earners. It would raise only about $53.02 billion over ten years.
Increasing the Estate Tax rate from 40 percent to 45 percent and lowering the exclusion, raises will about $131 billion over ten years.
