Increasing concern about poverty in the United States has led to suggestions for distributing funds to the poor through the income tax system rather than through customary welfare channels. The basic idea in most of these proposals is that of making payments to, rather than collecting taxes from, family units whose incomes fall below a minimum level defined as the poverty threshold. Such payments are termed "negative taxes." This study was a background paper for a conference of experts held at the Brookings Institution on June 8 and 9, 1966. The book's final chapter summarizes discussion at the conference.
