Tax Equity And Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982

Legislation in the United States, passed in 1982, that rolled back some of the tax cuts the federal government enacted the previous year. It repealed accelerated depreciation deductions and created a 10% withholding tax on all dividends sent to accounts without tax identification numbers. It also increased the unemployment tax. While TEFRA raised taxes, they remained well below what they were prior to Ronald Reagan's accession to the presidency. See also: Reaganomics.
