The Unified Tax Reform Framework
The America First tax relief plan will strengthen the middle class, grow the economy, and unleash America’s economic comeback. The plan consists of four main points: tax cuts for working Americans, a simpler tax code, lower business tax rates, and bringing wealth back to the United States. Here are a few of the measures included in President Trump’s tax relief plan:
  • Double the standard deduction.
  • Consolidate the seven existing tax brackets for taxable income to only three brackets: 12 percent, 25 percent, and 35 percent.
