What's Going on With the Proposed Tax Plan and Families Without Kids?

November 16, 2017

There is so much going on with the proposed Republican tax plan that we can be pretty certain that between the time this post was written and the time Congress votes on the bill , things will have changed again. But, looking over the basics, it becomes clear that the announced promise of reducing taxes for everyone is not entirely genuine. And, in the case of households without children, tax reforms as currently written may hit us harder than most.  

 

 

On the surface, doubling the standard deduction for both single and married taxpayers sounds like it might reduce America's overall tax bill. Problem A : The removal of a variety of tax credits doesn't measure up to make the right difference.

 

In fact, under the current proposal, all individual tax deductions would be eliminated completely. The only exception will be deductions related to home ownership and charitable donations. Taxpayers wouldn’t be able to write off a variety of things such as state and local property taxes or medical expenses that are currently allowed.
