There is precious little help in the bill for those of us who actually pay most of the taxes. Take a look at Quicken or something similar for a rundown of the whole mess. In a nutshell, here's what comes through this year that might affect you:

- Roth/regular IRA income limits are unchanged.

- "highly compesated" definition is unchanged as far as I know

- The 28% bracket will be 27.5%

- Part of the 15% bracket becomes 10% and you'll get a check for the difference this summer (max $600, whoop-de-doo)

- If you are affected by AMT (I hope not, 'cause it blows), the income exemption increases by ~2/4 k depending on if you're single or married

That's about it for this year.
