Think the Bush tax-cut debate doesn't apply to you? Think again.
Unless Congress hammers out an agreement on extending a whole range of tax breaks beyond this year, many Americans will soon find it more expensive to be married, have a child, send them to college or buy an energy-efficient car.

The Bush tax cuts have received the most attention because they have the widest impactâ€”affecting personal income, capital gains and dividends. But there are a whole host of other tax breaksâ€”some adopted by President Obamaâ€”that will expire if Congress fails to break its ideological gridlock and agree on a tax plan.
