Exacerbating Inequities in Pension Benefits: an Analysis of the Pension Provisions in the Tax Bill

October 8, 1999. "The tax bill Congress approved in August and the President subsequently vetoed ('The Taxpayer Refund and Relief Act of 1999') includes a number of pension tax provisions, including provisions related to employer-provided pensions as well as to individual retirement accounts.
