THE SHELF PROJECT
View Papers: http://www.ssrn.com/link/Shelf-Project-RES.html
The proposal is made as a part of the Shelf Project, which is a collaboration among tax professionals to develop and perfect proposals to help Congress raise revenue. The current deficit, now at $1.6 trillion or 11.2 percent of GDP, cannot be sustained. In the impending revenue crisis, base-protecting revenue provisions that were not possible under ordinary politics become political necessities. Shelf projects defend the tax base and improve the rationality and efficiency of the tax system. Shelf Project proposals are intended to raise revenue without raising rates because the best tax systems have the broadest possible base to reach the lowest feasible tax rates.
