On Thursday, March 9, President Joe Biden released his $6.9 trillion Budget and various accompanying documents. Separately, the Treasury Department released its Green Book, which provides more detailed descriptions of the tax proposals in the budget along with associated revenue estimates.

For FY2024, the Budget would result in an estimated federal deficit of approximately $1.8 trillion – an increase of more than 30% compared to FY2023 levels. The budget also proposes $880 billion for defense and approximately $992 billion for non-defense discretionary spending. To improve tax administration and enforcement, the Budget recommends $14.1 billion for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a $1.8 billion or nearly 15% increase over the FY2023 enacted funding.

The Budget includes proposals for significant new federal spending on entitlement programs and tax relief for families and workers over the next decade, resulting in a proposed annual budget of about $10 trillion by 2033. To offset these spending increases, the Budget revives several tax proposals offered in previous budget requests or in the FY2022 budget-reconciliation process. The Budget also incorporates new proposals to increase taxes on large corporations and individuals with over $400,000 in annual income. If enacted in its entirety, the Budget would raise $4.7 trillion in additional tax revenue over the next decade compared to baseline budgetary estimates.

The need for fact-based reporting of issues important to multi generational businesses and protecting a lifetime of savings has never been greater. Now more than ever, multi generational businesses and family businesses are under fire. That’s why Policy and Taxation Group is passionately working to increase the awareness of issues important to generationally-owned family businesses built on hard work, while continuing to strengthen our presence on Capitol Hill.  Those issues include Step Up in Basis, gift tax, Valuation Discounts, Capital Gains Tax, Income Tax Rates, Wealth Tax, & Estate Tax (death tax).

Policy and Taxation Group is the leading information, education and advocacy organization working for the reduction and ultimate elimination of estate, gift, and generation skipping transfer taxes, and other taxes that punish hard work and success. Our Mission is to challenge hostile tax policies that meaningfully and measurably impact families and limit the ability of family businesses to remain family owned. We work with Congress in Washington DC against high Income Tax Rates, possible elimination of Valuation Discounts, increase in Capital Gains Tax, enactment of a Wealth Tax, and the continued burden of the Estate Tax (death tax), and the possible elimination of Step up in Basis.
