The President Pushes For Tax Overhaul

And it will seek, as widely expected, to simplify the tax system by reducing the number of income tax brackets from seven to three. They pay a hugely disproportionate share of federal income taxes today, and they generally have the most dynamic responses to tax cuts. That could save a $500,000-a-year executive $23,000.

The tax renovation plan constructed by the White House and GOP leaders is the first major face-lift of the tax system over the last three decades. So a married couple up to $24,000 can spend their money on their family, on their children, what they have to do. Currently, families can receive as much as $1,000 per child. Administration officials said Trump's plan would be "at least as progressive as the current tax code".

It will be up to Congress to assign the income ranges that would be under each bracket.

Rep. Sanford Bishop, D-Albany: "Although the Republican proposal includes some positive provisions, including doubling the standard deduction and eliminating the death tax, I have concerns over the plan's long-term costs and impacts on working families".

"It's time for Washington to learn from the wisdom of IN", he said.

But there are too many unknowns in the proposal right now to know how it actually would affect taxpayers.

Repealing the individual and corporate alternative minimum taxes.

-U.S. -based global corporations. He says a business like his can't afford a separate professional to get the company's tax filings in order. The AMT raised the US government about $38 billion in 2017.

The plan also calls for a reduction in the "pass-through" rate to 25 percent, a move that would affect income that "passes through" a business to its owners.

What that means: The top rate is, indeed, dropping from 39.6 percent to 25 percent.

But Trump singled out the most prominent Democrat in the audience, saying if Senator Joe Donnelly doesn't support it, "we'll come after him like you wouldn't believe" in next year's election. We're going to cut taxes for the middle class, make the tax code simpler and more fair for everyday Americans. The top bracket would see a reduced tax rate; the lowest bracket would see an increased tax rate. The current statutory federal rate is 35%. Trump's plan would end the US practice of taxing the foreign profits of USA -based corporations.

"This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity", Trump insisted. Two different tax rates will be applied: one for cash and cash equivalents, and another, lower rate for illiquid assets.

Top republican leaders say they're making tax reform their focus now after striking out on health care, but not everyone is on board with the plan.
