The Republican Tax Proposal

Center for Economic and Policy Research logo

Republicans in Congress propose corporate and individual income taxes cuts. The plan lowers the top marginal tax rate, paid on incomes over $450,000, from 39.6% to 35%. Middle and moderate-income people would see little change in tax rates, but are likely to have slightly lower taxes as a result of the larger exempt amount. The corporate tax rate would fall from 35% to 20%.

Many specifics are not final, but according to independent analyses the richest 1% would get almost 80% of the gains. The plan also raises the deficit $2.4 trillion over the next decade.
