Nonpayers complicate Republican effort at overhaul of US tax code
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
More than 45 percent of U.S. households won't owe federal income taxes for 2010. That stems from decades of tax cuts and, in the minds of some Republican lawmakers, it's also a problem. Policies designed to ease the tax burden of lower-income Americans and offer targeted tax incentives have pushed millions of people off the income tax rolls.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., could propose sweeping legislation to tax all online purchases, in a move aimed at closing states' budget shortfalls. Such a tax would plow more than $1 billion in tax revenues into New York's state coffers for the 2012 budget, according to some estimates. William Fox, a University of Tennessee economics professor, said that based on his own estimates, New York lost about $865.5 million in tax revenues in 2010 — almost enough to close that year's $1 billion budget deficit — based on its four percent tax rate.
