Panelists talked about the impact on taxpayers if Congress allows the economy to fall off the “fiscal cliff,” referring to impending tax increases and budget cuts at the end of 2012 if lawmakers fail to reach a new budget agreement. A new Tax Policy Center report said that middle income families would pay about $2000 dollars more in taxes in 2013 if the tax increases occur.
