Accounting for The Benefit of Retirement Saving Incentives in Distribution Tables

Technical Methodology Report

Abstract

This paper describes the updated methodology that the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) uses to estimate the benefits taxpayers receive from proposals that allow them to save through a qualified retirement savings plan. We present tables comparing how we currently measure these benefits and explain the rationale for the current method and how it improves upon the previous method TPC used and addresses some problems that were inherent in the previous method.
