Signed into law by President Trump on December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1) overhauls America’s tax code to revitalize our nation’s economy and deliver historic tax relief to workers, families, and local job creators. By lowering taxes across the board, eliminating costly special-interest tax breaks, and modernizing our international tax system, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will help create more jobs, increase paychecks, and make the tax code simpler and fairer for Americans of all walks of life.
With this law, the typical family of four earning the median family income of $73,000 will receive a tax cut of $2,059.
