While presidential candidate Herman Cain has drawn much attention with his 9-9-9 tax overhaul plan, many taxpayers would like to know exactly how his proposal would affect them.

Experts have criticized the plan, saying that it would increase taxes for the poor and middle class, and provide cuts for the rich.
