An analysis of Joe Biden’s tax proposals, October 2020 update | American Enterprise Institute

Key Points

  • Using the Tax-Calculator (3.0.0) microsimulation
    model, we estimate that Joe Biden’s propos­als would raise federal revenue by
    $2.8 trillion over the next decade (2021–30).
  • The majority of new federal revenue would come
    from businesses and corporations ($1.9 tril­lion). The remaining revenue would
    come from individual income and payroll tax increases ($616.8 billion) and an
    increase in estate and gift taxes ($276.4 billion).
  • In 2021, Biden’s proposals would increase taxes,
    on average, for the top 5 percent of households and reduce taxes on households
    in the bottom 95 percent. In 2030, Biden’s proposals would increase taxes, on
    average, for households at every income level, but tax increases would
    primarily fall on the top 1 percent of income earners.
  • Using the open-source OG-USA (0.6.2) model, we
    estimate that Biden’s proposals would reduce gross domestic product (GDP) by
    0.16 percent over the next decade, slightly increase GDP the second decade
