President Obama Announces Middle-Class Tax Reform

In preparation for the State of the Union address, President Obama released his tax proposal for middle class families. This proposal seeks to provide relief for middle class families with more childcare, education, and retirement tax benefits and other credits. President Obama plans to increase capital gains and dividend tax rates to 28% and impose fees on large U.S. financial firms in order to pay for this reform.
