Model Output Model output compares the original state tax liability on the sample returns with the newly calculated liability Sample returns are expanded to represent the universe of resident returns The output is then grown to current tax year Actual tax liability growth for completed years Estimated filer growth used for future years
Final Notes on Model Output Output is presented in terms of a tax year Numbers reflect total tax liability in a given tax year not a fiscal year Database was chosen on tax liability and filing status and not on smaller groups within the whole population therefore impacts are guidelines and should not be considered exact representations of the impact. Model does not include the impact of credits
