Trump: ‘Our Tax Code Should Recognize that the Most Important Investment We Can Make Is in Our Children’
TRUMP: "First, we are going to make the tax code simple and fair so that families can spend more time with their children and less time wading through pages of paperwork. A staggering 94 percent of families use professional help to do their taxes. Now that's not fair. It's not right. That's why under our plan, 95 percent of Americans will be able to file their tax returns on a single page without keeping receipts, tracking paperwork, or filling out extra schedules. Second, we're going to cut taxes for the middle class so that hardworking Americans can finally save more for their future. We want to help families keep more of what they earn and to be able to afford the cost of raising a family. Our tax code should recognize that the most important investment we can make is in our children. Third, we are going to restore America's competitive edge by making our tax system more attractive for investment and for job creation. Our business tax rate is the highest in the world, pushing jobs to foreign countries. That's not what we want. That's not what I've been talking about all these years. I've been talking about the exact opposite. We need to bring down our tax rate so we can create jobs, wealth and opportunity right here in the United States of America so we can bring our jobs back and bring our businesses back. We want tax reform that puts America first."
