CCH has published a special report comparing the tax policies and proposals of President Barack Obama with his Republican rival Mitt Romney.

The new report, Special Tax Briefing: 2012 Tax Policies of the Major Presidential Candidates, analyzes the potential impact of their tax positions both for the immediate future and for 2014 and beyond.

“The uncertainties facing taxpayers in 2013 are almost unprecedented in scope,” said CCH principal federal tax analyst Mark Luscombe in a statement. “With a combination of potential major events, including what many refer to as ‘taxmageddon’ and the ‘fiscal cliff,’ and the scheduled sunsetting of Bush-era tax cuts on December 31, 2012, the winner of the November presidential election and his tax policy will have a significant impact on all taxpayers across the country.”

Additional special briefings on significant tax developments are available at
