Tax Reform

Tax reform is essential to strengthening the economy in Michigan and across the nation.  Congress must continue its work to end waste, fraud and abuse in the tax code.  Simplifying the tax code will help families keep more money in their pockets and help small businesses create more jobs.  These reforms will also provide stability to small businesses planning for the future and help them remain competitive in the global economy.

"Many Michigan residents are living paycheck to paycheck and next month those paychecks are going to be bigger. They will have extra money in each paycheck to spend here in our communities and to provide for their families."

Lower tax rates, a bigger standard deduction, a bigger child tax credit, and bigger paychecks, means more money for Michigan families, small businesses and our communities. As one resident from Roscommon told me, “Any time a family can keep more of their own earnings and spend it as they see fit, it is a good thing.” I could not agree more and I am proud to support real tax relief for Michigan families.

Tax reform is already benefiting hardworking Michigan residents. Companies like AT&T are using the money they save to invest in their employees and our country. With the lower rates, higher standard deductions, and a $2,000 child tax credit, Michigan residents will have higher wages and pay less in taxes, keeping more of their own money.

Tax reform is tax relief for middle class families and Main Street, bigger paychecks, more jobs and a simpler, fairer system. This is the first major tax reform since 1986 and I will continue to fight for tax relief for hardworking Michigan families.

This is tax relief for middle class families and Main Street. It will mean bigger paychecks, more jobs and a simpler, fairer system that closes loopholes. It will be a tax cut for Michigan families and keep more money here at home in our local communities.
November 2, 2017 Press Release
I have heard from constituents I represent about how they are struggling with higher costs for everyday expenses. The tax reform introduced today will help Michigan families by giving them a tax cut. For a family of four making median income, the cut would be more than $1,100, letting Michigan families keep more of their own money so they can meet their needs and provide for their children.
