President's Message

A Taxing Time No More

"April is the cruelest month" wrote T.S. Elliott in his 1922 poem, 'The Wasteland'. Although not referring to tax time, the description has been apt. That is until now, when nerves and wallets will be less taxed because President Trump's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a fiscal win that keeps on giving. The legislation cut taxes for American families at every income level and for businesses large and small, while dramatically simplifying the code and repealing distortionary tax credits.

Republicans kept their promise and passed a comprehensive tax reform. Even though the was only signed into law in December of 2017, the law is already a success. Within hours of its passing by the House and Senate, AT&T announced plans to provide 200,000 U.S. employees with a $1,000 bonus, followed by similar announcements from Comcast, Pfizer, and smaller businesses like Tampa based Spellex Corporation. Americans are cheering on employers who have responded to the pro-growth reforms by investing in their workers by giving close to four million employees bonuses, pay increases, and better benefits such as: increases in tuition funding (McDonald’s); maternity and parental leave and adoption expenses (Walmart and Disney); charitable deductions, workforce development and office infrastructure (Boeing); and employee retirement donations and corporate matching funds (Visa and Cigna). Utility companies across the country are lowering rates. The Treasury Department estimates that take-home pay will increase for 90 percent of taxpayers.  A family of four, earning the median income of $73,000, will receive a tax cut of more than $2,000 this year. Similarly, a single parent with one child earning $41,000 per year will see tax reduction of 73 percent, resulting in a $1,304 tax cut. 

Companies are also investing the new found capital back into their businesses, so that unemployment is at a 17 year low and jobless claims at a 45 year low.  Private companies added 241,000 positions vs. a 205,000 estimateas employment in construction and manufacturing surged. Optimism is at an all-time high from small businesses to large manufacturers because the bill puts American businesses on a level playing field with foreign competitors. America’s corporate tax rate will go from being the highest in the developed world to below the average for Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. A one-time tax on corporate earnings stashed overseas will end the incentive for companies to keep their profits outside the United States. The act will eliminate dozens of special interest tax breaks and loopholes and raise $4 trillion in revenue to help offset tax cuts by ending dozens of corporate accounting tricks. The bill eliminates a loophole used to deduct compensation for executives earning more than $1 million a year. And, members of Congress will no longer be able to deduct their living expenses.

Not one Democrat voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  They mocked the President’s and party’s reforms and derided the benefits. Where Democrats saw mere scraps and crumbs, Americans are now seeing more jobs, bigger paychecks, better benefits, and less taxing IRS filings. Who is feeling crumby now?  For Democrats, April will indeed be a cruel and mocking month.

Tim Taylor, President
