Trump tax plan: Relief for his voters but lots of unknowns

The plan would also allow many wealthy individuals who own businesses to pay income tax not at the 35 percent individual rate but at the new 15 percent corporate rate. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin appears on a television screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Wednesday, April 26, 2017. The florist has a range of possibilities, not just from the prospect of lower taxes, but that he'd get more business from customers who have more money to spend. Next door to the White House, in the Treasury Department, there are actual economists who take seriously the responsibility of safeguarding the world's biggest national economy. It was not clear whether the plan would keep the exclusion for employer-provided health-care plans, which, if taxed, could substantially raise taxes for middle- and working-class workers. But Trump's top economic adviser used some bad math to describe the proposal, raising questions. The standard deduction for married couples would double under the plan.

"While residents of high income tax states like California will not like this last change, it is absurd for the rest of the nation to be subsidizing California's bloated state government through a carte blanche deduction". It widens even further when we add the GOP's repeal of a tax that funds Medicare tucked into the proposed Obamacare repeal.

Perhaps, but he also has to be aware that these kinds of tax cuts will benefit him personally.

"New Jerseyans are usually higher income producers than other parts of the country, and if there are reductions in personal income tax rates, that may offset some of that", Christie said.

On his 100th day in office, President Donald Trump discusses his new role with CBS News' John Dickerson in an interview at the White House. Provide tax relief to American families - especially middle income families.

"For most Americans, we think they should be able to do their taxes on a large postcard."
If individuals declare themselves "pass-through entities", under this plan, they can be taxed at the corporate tax rate.

Tax brackets: The new plan proposes three tax brackets as opposed to seven (10 percent, 25 percent, and 35 percent).

Based on the outline, there's every reason to believe the wealthiest people in the United States will receive the biggest cuts under Trump's plan, though many low- and middle-income families would benefit, too. Instead there's a welfare class that doesn't pay taxes and progressive members of an upper class that feels guilty enough to back taxes.

It would eliminate deductions for state and local tax payments and all others except the home mortgage interest and charitable donations.

Last year, more than 43 million families claimed the deduction, saving them almost $70 billion.

Several kids hurt in school bus crash north of Bemidji
One person has died and 16 kids have been hospitalized after a crash involving a school bus Thursday morning. The student who was airlifted was injured when his arm was pinned between a bus seat and a window.

Yum! Brands, which employs more than 500,000 people and made over $13 billion would cut a little more than $2.5 billion in taxes.

Trump wants to slash the top tax rate for all businesses to 15%, as he proposed during the campaign. Finally, it repeals the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT), which was created to ensure that higher earners pay a minimum level of taxes, and does away with the estate tax, which taxes inheritances. The fact is it affects very few estates. Most everyone fears it, but it's already been so watered down as to apply only to estates worth at least $5.5 million.

Trump also wants to reduce the top income tax rate from 39.6 percent to 35 percent.

President Donald Trump has released a one-page plan to completely reform the tax code.
