From all appearances, 2012 would appear to be a banner year for tax policy. The second session of the 112th Congress is beginning with a renewed fight over the expiring payroll tax cut enacted in December 2010. Major portions of the individual tax code -- lower tax rates for all income classes and special lower rates for investment income -- will expire at the end of the year. The estate tax is scheduled to revert to pre-2001 law. And as corporations clamor for a tax overhaul to make U.S. law competitive globally, even President Obama wants to change the way companies are taxed.

Add to the mix that fiscal policy is hamstrung by soaring deficits and last fall even some Republicans were willing to consider raising revenue in the context of an individual tax overhaul, and the legislative stew is pretty potent.

There is much to talk about, even if conventional wisdom about the polarization on Capitol Hill implies little will happen before the end of the session -- if then.

The fact is, Congress has a shelf full of tax ideas to consider and an overwhelming need to do so at some point.
