Spicer: More Americans Will Get the Tax Relief They ‘So Desperately Need’
SPICER: "The Secretary of the Treasury and Director Cohn yesterday both talked about that the current plan right now both protects charitable giving and mortgage interest and that’s it. As we move forward with negotiation in the House and the Senate, that plan will continue to flush out, but one of the benefits of the tax plan on the individual side in particular is by expanding the standard deduction to $24,000 for married couples. That effectively creates a bracket of zero taxes for many, many Americans and that’s good news. We’ll see more and more Americans get some relief that they so desperately need."
