The District of Columbia is treated as a state in groupings of states. Rognlie also found that "surging house prices are almost entirely responsible for growing returns on capital. Based on the information Mr Giles has provided so far, however, the analysis does not seem to support many of the allegations made by the FT, or the conclusion that the book's argument is wrong.

If you don't qualify for the Savers Tax Credit, you may still be able to deduct the contributions you made to your tax-deferred IRA. The investigation undercuts this claim, indicating there is little evidence in Prof Piketty's original sources to bear out the thesis that an increasing share of total wealth is held by the richest few. While all business assets have a book value, that value is only calculated for property assets, like equipment, vehicles, and furniture and fixtures.

Politicians cut every tax that fell heavily on the wealthy: high-end income taxes, investment taxes, the estate tax and the corporate tax. The farther the score falls below zero, the more regressive the tax code. Taxes imposed on certain useful products may divert resources from one region to another. In a large body of academic research on this question, it seems that the exact time period and country examined and how tax changes are measured matters a lot — as does what the government does with the revenue.
