Call your U.S. Representative today to support H.R. 8
H.R. 8 would extend through the end of 2013 the current income tax and estate tax rates, which are set to expire at the end of 2012. This extension would also include a "marriage penalty" fix, a $1,000 child tax credit, a 15 percent top rate on dividends and capital gains, and a "patch" to ensure that the Alternative Minimum Tax does not ensnare millions of taxpayers it was never intended to affect.
Some Members of Congress are opposed to extending the 2001/2003 tax cuts for upper-income taxpayers who earn more than $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for families. You and I both know that many of us and small businesses throughout the country would be hit with skyrocketing taxes if these extensions are capped at $200,000 and $250,000, respectively.
It is imperative that you contact your Member of Congress and state your full support for H.R. 8 and your opposition to capping the cuts at the reduced levels. Estimates from the Joint Committee on Taxation state that H.R. 8 would prevent taxes from rising by $384 billion over 10 years. Our families and small businesses cannot survive any increase in taxes and we need to make sure Congress hears your voice.
