Tax increases on middle class - the wealthy - budget cuts - Congress can't decide as "fiscal cliff" nears

If nothing is done the average American family’s tax bill stands to go up between about $3,000 to $4,000, depending on which study you believe. The Heritage Foundation said the average Missourian would pay $2,634 more in taxes next year.
