Letter: Tax relief will help us all

Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Our president’s vision for tax reform will help New Hampshire’s working families.

Americans spend 6 billion hours and more than $250 billion preparing taxes each year. This really needs to change and we need to make a system that is not rigged against the hard working middle class.

The U.S. tax code has not had a comprehensive update in three decades. Is there anything that you still use from three decades ago? The tax code is more than six times longer than it was in 1955 – which is outrageous. We need an updated tax code that is easier for small businesses, and working individuals and families.

President Trump’s tax plan will bring back our jobs and create lower taxes and higher wages, which will make a better future for all. Our state’s U.S. representatives and U.S. senators should stand behind our president in trying to make America more affordable for hard working individuals and families.

Tax relief is a major part of the president’s plan to return economic growth throughout our great country and New Hampshire, helping everyday citizens like you and me. President Trump is continuing on his promise to make America great again and I hope our Congressional federal delegation will join him in supporting tax relief for Granite Staters.
