What the Obama and McCain Tax Plans Mean to You
An examination of the candidates' tax policies by the Tax Policy Center figured out what
they could hold for you:
People who earn up to $18,725 a year would get a $65 tax cut from McCain, and a $567 cut from Obama.
Those who make between $37,000 and $66,000 would see an extra $608 under McCain's plan and $1,118 from Obama's plan.
If your income is between $66,000 and $110,00, McCain's proposal would mean $1,487 less in taxes, while Obama's would lighten the load by $1,264.
The biggest difference would be for those earning between $680,000 and $2.8 million. They would get a $109,214 tax break from McCain, but would pay an extra $121,689 under Obama's plan.
