Levin: New JCT Data Shows Many in Middle Class Get Hit with Higher Taxes Under GOP Bill

Nov 7, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today highlighted information from the Joint Committee on Taxation that shows large numbers of middle-income taxpayers being required to pay higher taxes under the Republican tax bill, especially in future years:

“The data is clear – the Republican bill will raise taxes on millions of middle-class Americans.  According to new information from Congress’ official scorekeeper one out of every five taxpayers with incomes between $75,000 and $100,000 will be hit with a tax increase of more than $500 in 2023 under the Republican tax bill.  And at least some Americans in every other income group will also see significant tax increases, including one out of seven of those with income between $50,000 and $75,000.”
