House Democrats have floated a suite of tax hikes and changes to pay for the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill and, by design, America’s highest earners will pony up the most.
A new analysis from the Tax Policy Center finds that the top 1% and top 0.1% would see particularly hefty hikes under the latest proposal, while lower-earning parents would benefit from tax cuts.
Democrats are using a few methods to target high earners. They propose increasing the income tax rate to 39.6% for individuals who earn over $400,000.
