Et tu? I expect it from politicians, but not from tax people.
I read “Making Sense of the New Tax Legislation” (JofA, Sep.01, page 22). This is not marriage penalty relief—it’s a break for all married people, including those who already had a significant break over single people.
Married couples with only one of the persons working, or where one had only a small amount of income, never had a penalty. It was the unmarried couple that had the penalty. With the new law, this penalty has increased.
I am married, by the way, and my wife works.
