The Progress-Index Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

On the in­come dis­tri­bu­tion charts at the cen­ter of tax over­haul plans, Court­ney Mishoe knows she’s do­ing well. She works as a tax man­ager at a firm in the At­lanta sub­urbs. Her husband is a po­lice of­fi­cer. To­gether they make more than $180,000 a year.

They are solidly in the up­per mid­dle class. But they have a mort­gage and three kids, in­clud­ing one in day care and an­other in high school with plans to go to col­lege. It all adds up. They de­pend on tax de­duc­tions to make their bud­get work.
