No 2011-01, SCEPA publication series. from Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis (SCEPA), The New School
Department of the Treasury's Office of Management of the Budget and the Joint Committee on Taxation for the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committees on the Budget calculate federal tax expenditures differently. Research institutes and policy think-tanks use data from both agencies to make projections and policy prescriptions. Knowing the size of tax expenditures provides a clear understanding of the size of the government and sharpens our questions about the reasons for the $121 billion tax break for pensions.
