  • increasing the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) over a three-year period to 40% of the federal EITC (currently 35%);
  • creating a child and dependent care tax credit;
  • raising the property tax deduction to $15,000 (currently $10,000);
  • adding a 10.75% “millionaire’s tax;”
  • modernizing business taxes through combined reporting with a limited water’s-edge election, market-based sourcing, and taxing international holding companies;
  • taxing, on a one-time basis, the deemed repatriation of foreign-held assets;
  • restructuring the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit (NRTC) program;
  • restoring the sales and use tax rate to 7%;
  • modernizing the sales tax base to include ridesharing services, transient accommodations, and certain remote sales; and
