Trump's Tax Reform Plan Draws Mixed Reaction In NY

One source of alarm for the advice industry before the framework came out was the seemingly growing attention by lawmakers to the "cost" of individuals deferring a portion of their income pre-tax into retirement accounts. "This will be the lowest top marginal income tax rate for small and medium-sized businesses in more than 80 years - this huge tax cut will be rocket fuel for our economy". Ron Wyden, a Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, told CNBC that Trump's plan would create "a whole new set of wealthy individuals being able to dodge their taxes through this new provision".

Before the parsing, pissing and politicalization of President Trump's nine-page tax reform proposal gets hot and heavy, here are some essential features that might help or hurt real estate.

One will sometimes hear that it's improper or immoral to use the tax code to achieve social goals, but the only answer to that is: Sez who?

Successive rounds of federal tax cuts have eroded progressive taxation and helped increase wealth inequality in the United States, according to research by the economists Thomas Piketty of the Paris School of Economics and Emmanuel Saez of the University of California at Berkeley. "So more detail is definitely needed to see what the impact of reforms might be". "To do that, you're going to have to eliminate a lot of the deductions". The "replacement" proposed is full expensing of capital expenditures for a minimum of five years. In the 1990s, the pitch was tied to a "flat tax" - one tax rate for all income and, yes, a postcard-sized tax return.

A crucial component of the Republican argument on taxes is that increased prosperity for already-wealthy Americans will eventually spread to everyone. "If the corporate tax rate is reduced enough, it could reduce or eliminate the advantage of choosing to be taxed as a REIT". And yet, the 1986 tax reform was largely revenue neutral, and indeed, raised the amount that corporations paid. The framework wants to lower the tax on pass-through business income.

Poonam Goyal, Bloomberg Intelligence senior USA retail analyst, said the House GOP's border-adjusted tax that was previously being considered was the main concern for retailers.

The proposal also says what the tax rates for those brackets will be. These corporations pay no corporate income tax.

Amazon also showed off a new Fire TV device capable of streaming ultra-high definition 4K video from the internet to televisions. But it's also no secret that Google is pushing its Google Home smart speaker as a major competitor to Amazon Echo devices.

A corporate tax reduction "helps boost earnings and cash flow" for retailers, Goyal said.

Law firm partners, like others, would benefit from reducing the top taxable individual rate from 39.6 percent to 35 percent, but Republicans have also suggested another top tax rate that is not yet defined. Personal exemptions aren't included in the reform package, which could result in higher overall taxable income for larger families even with a big standard deduction.

Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. stocks rallied ahead of the release of the Big Six's tax framework.

The GOP framework includes other measures that would benefit higher earners and the wealthy. "If you do, you'll never get tax reform", Mulvaney said to Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria and added that this is a reason why the USA has not had serious tax reform in 30 years.

Another thing the reform does is gets rid of writing off state and local taxes, which in a high-tax state like NY, could hurt property owners. We must end the current tax system which encourages companies to move jobs overseas. But because he refuses to release his own tax returns, Americans have no idea how much he would benefit from his own tax plan. "It is a sketch of an outline of a preliminary notion of a tax cut for some - and a tax hike for others".

The largest U.S. labour union denounced the new plan as a "con game" likely to result in cuts to essential public services and social spending.
