President Trump recently released his tax reform plan. The proposal aims to drastically cut corporate and individual taxes. The goal is to create economic growth and American jobs, to lower the business tax rate to one of the lowest in the world, and would be one of the biggest tax reductions in American history. The proposal includes the following:

Business Tax Changes:

  • 15% tax for corporations and flow-through entities
  • Territorial tax system
  • One-time tax on trillions of repatriated offshore dollars

 

Individual Tax Changes:

  • Reduce the existing seven tax brackets to three (10%, 25% and 35%)
  • Double the standard deduction
  • Repeal the alternative minimum tax
  • Repeal the estate and gift tax
  • Maintain the home interest and charitable deductions while eliminating other deductions
  • Tax relief for families with child and dependent care expenses

 
The proposal would still need to be approved by Congress, which may lead to a tax package that is different from the current proposal.
