Trump tax plan could be good news for many, bad for deficit

If there are less taxes coming in, there also has to be a plan on how to balance the gap.

"We are seeing a lowering of tax rates overall from small business and corporate rates as well as personal income tax rates", Hutchison said.

Stock markets around the world made only modest moves on Wednesday, waiting to see what the White House has in store for USA tax policy.

"I can't support it if it eliminates the property tax and state income tax deductions", Congressman Peter King of NY told Agence France-Presse.

Goldwein said he thinks a 25-percent to 28-percent corporate tax rate would strike a good balance between economic competitiveness and fiscal responsibility. Gone. The federal deduction for state and local taxes you pay?

The Trump administration unveiled a plan it calls the "biggest tax cut" and "largest tax reform in US history".

According to a White House one-pager, the President's plan would "eliminate targeted tax breaks that primarily benefit the wealthiest taxpayers". After accounting for deductions and tax credits, the typical American corporation does not pay taxes at a rate of 35 percent - among the highest rates in the world - but at an effective rate of 27.9 percent, which is nearly equal to the average among advanced nations.

The administration is also proposing to tax only corporate income earned in the United States. These businesses, known as "pass-throughs" or "S corporations", are often small, family-owned firms that are common in Maine.

Stocks have sprinted higher since November, due in large part to excitement that lower taxes and looser regulations for businesses are on the way.

The last sweeping reform came in 1986.

"This isn't going to be easy. Doing big things never is", Cohn admitted. We'll be attacked from the left.

"It's not just the tax bill that's going to affect taxes", said Mel Schwarz, partner in the Grant Thornton office.

Georgia run-off sets new test for President Trump
While no poll showed Ossoff getting to 50 percent (even with undecided voters allocated), he was dominating the early vote . Republicans had a large slate of candidates in the "jungle primary", including a few who unapologetically supported Trump.

Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. That's why we are one of the least competitive countries in the developed world when it comes to taxes. The real estate magnate might save millions of dollars in his personal taxes because of the changes.

"The difference between 1.6 percent, 1.8 percent GDP and three percent is staggering", Mnuchin said.

Many large corporations are enthusiastic about lower rates and say they support the elimination of loopholes, which both reduce revenue and make taxes more complicated. "He will get this done for the American people".

Mnuchin called the proposal "the biggest tax cut" in US history.

But there is no evidence showing the results of tax breaks are consistent, in fact, recent American history shows tax breaks don't always fit the economic growth agenda. The president's plan is a great starting point.

American families will not be the only ones to benefit from Trump's tax reform. Initially created to prevent taxpayers with a large amount of disposable income from using loopholes to evade taxes, repealing it will no doubt cater to the economically elite.

The four Republican leaders who met at the White House Tuesday night, Paul Ryan, along with Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, released a joint statement addressing the tax reform plan. "Reducing taxes on all businesses down to 15 percent will turbocharge the economy".

On the corporate side, the top marginal tax rate would fall from 35 percent to 15 percent. Dividend income will return to 20 percent. Growth has been stuck at about 2 percent a year since the recession ended in 2009.

"This plan will lower the ratio of debt to [gross domestic product]".

But so far, key Republicans praised the core of Trump's plan and signaled a willingness to negotiate with him on key details.

- Repeal of the Alternative Minimum Tax, which had forced wealthier individuals to pay higher bills, and the estate tax, which Cohn and others described as "the death tax".
