Donald Trump Just Tweaked His Tax Plan. It’s Still A Massive Giveaway To The Rich.

Trump's tax planDonald Trump touted a retooled economic plan on Thursday, promising to provide middle-class tax cuts and eliminate perks for the rich. The actual terms of the plan, however, indicate an approach that remains tilted heavily in favor of the wealthy.

Trump would slash the federal income tax rate for the richest Americans from the current level of 39.6 percent to 33 percent, and reduce the tax rate on the largest corporations from 35 percent to 15 percent. His plan would wholly repeal the federal inheritance tax, a levy that only applies to families that transmit several million dollars to heirs. Eliminating the inheritance tax on the rich would cost the U.S. Treasury about $269 billion over 10 years.


Paul Ryan: Trump Should Release His Tax Returns

paul Ryan says Trump should release tax returnsHouse Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump should make his tax returns public. “I released mine,” Ryan said, referring to when he was the GOP’s vice presidential nominee in 2012. “I think he should release his. I’ll leave it to him when to do it.”

Trump has rebuffed calls to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit of previous years’ documents. Donald Trump Jr., the candidate’s son, suggested in an interview that his father’s tax returns, if made public, would simply be a distraction from his message. “He’s got a 12,000-page tax return that would create ... financial auditors out of every person in the country asking questions that would detract from (my father’s) main message,” Trump Jr. told the Tribune-Review.
