The 2009 federal income taxes that come due on April 15 have been cut for nearly all working Americans, including Americans at all income levels, by the Recovery Act signed by President

CTJ has new state-specific reports that aim to clear up this widespread misunderstanding. They show that the President cut taxes for working people at all income levels for 2009 and they show who was helped by each individual tax break.
