While many Americans are in a state of depression Monday as they mail hefty tax checks to Uncle Sam, the news will ultimately get worse, Income Taxes, Tax Increases, Deficit, Debttax experts tell The Hill. Taxes will eventually move higher thanks to a budget deficit of $1 trillion a year for as far as the eye can see, they say.

“We’re going broke,” says Clint Stretch, managing principal for tax policy at Deloitte Tax. “Whenever we’ve had big deficit-reduction measures in the past, it’s always had some spending cuts and some tax increases.”
