Almost all of George W. Bush’s tax cuts are now in place, or have begun to phase in. But two of the most regressive (and most overlooked) tax cuts enacted in 2001 will begin to take effect starting on January 1, 2006.
Since 1991, under a law signed by the first President Bush, the benefits of personal exemptions and most itemized deductions have been gradually phased out for the very wealthiest taxpayers. In 2001, however, the second President Bush succeeded in repealing his father’s reforms. The repeal is scheduled to begin to take effect in 2006, with full repeal in 2010.
