Interactive: Pres. Biden’s Federal Income Tax Plan Proposal

When it comes to tax policy, a change in Administration often means proposals to revise that daunting federal income tax code. One group estimated that it would take 62 days of non-stop reading to get through it!  The Biden Income Tax Calculator could be a quick and easy way to help inquisitive students understand what President Biden’s proposed federal income tax changes could mean for them or their families.

Here are just a few ways you could use the Biden Income Tax Calculator in your classroom:

  • Allow students to explore without any restrictions the impact of the Biden tax plan, which could be exploring their own personal circumstances or the circumstances of their family.
  • Assign students a filing status and have them answer the question: What income levels seem to be most impacted by these proposed changes? 
  • Partner up students, assign them the filing status of married and then together have them compare the impact of the proposed tax plan on various income levels.
    • $20,000
    • $50,000
    • $100,000
    • $250,000

Just below the calculator is an interactive of (FAQs) About Biden's Proposed Tax Plan, with Q&A such as “Will These Changes Happen in Time For the 2021 Tax Season?”
