Summary Measures and Graphs

Description of Proposed Provision:
Increase the threshold for taxation of OASDI benefits to $50,000 for single filers and $100,000 for joint filers starting in 2018. Taxation of benefits revenues transferred to the Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund would be the same as if the current-law computation applied.

Estimates based on the intermediate assumptions of the 2016 Trustees Report
