Reforming tax incentives to promote private savings for retirement
Brief from the Security and Opportunity Agenda
The Century Foundation
2 Aug 2006 United States Taxation, Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement

It proposes three straightforward reforms that would better target incentives to the families who need them most: consolidating the more than twenty tax breaks for retirement saving into two or three; converting all the tax deductions into tax credits that are refundable; and focusing tax breaks on the first $3,000 of retirement savings per year.
