Each February when the President releases his proposed Federal Budget for the following year, Treasury releases the General Explanations of the Administration's Revenue Proposals. Known as the a€œGreen Booka€ (or Greenbook), the document provides a concise explanation of each of the Administrationa€™s Fiscal Year 2014 tax proposals for raising revenue for the Government. This annual document clearly recaps each proposed change, reviewing the provisions in the Current Law, outlining the Administration's Reasons for Change to the law, and explaining the Proposal for the new law. Ideal for anyone wanting a clear summary of the Administration's policies and proposed tax law changes.
