Thanks to all the Tax.com readers who participated in our recent survey.
Our first survey question was about the congressional deficit reduction 'super' committee.
A clear majority of participants, 59%, responded that the committee's plan would not gain Congressional approval, meaning those automatic spending cuts would take effect.
The majority view sounds reasonable given our political realities. The GOP-controlled House of Representatives seems unlikely to agree to any package containing tax increases. Likewise, the Democratic-controlled Senate seems unlikely to pass any plan consisting solely of spending cuts...
Our second question involved... [t]he Bush tax cuts...
35% of you predicted the tax cuts would be renewed for everyone (the GOP position), while 33% said the tax cuts would be extended only for the bottom 98% of wage earners (the Obama position), and 32% think the tax cuts will expire for everyone.
