Extending the Bush Tax Cuts

The cost from 2010 to 2020

The bill for extending all the Bush tax cuts except the estate and gift tax reductions through 2020: $3.5 trillion.*

Income tax cut for families earning less than $250,000 a year: $1,184 billion

Income tax cut for families earning $250,000 a year or more: $700 billion

Inflation adjustment of the alternative minimum tax: $584 billion**

Marriage tax relief: $360 billion

$1,000 child tax credit: $359 billion

Capital-gains and dividend tax cuts: $238 billion

Other: $71 billion

* This analysis excludes the estate and gift tax cuts.

** Without this patch, the AMT would snatch back the Bush cuts from many higher-income taxpayers
