Trump Won . . . Now What?
On January 20, Donald Trump will take the oath of office as the 45th President of the United States. He’ll have the full support of a Republican House and Senate, meaning an end to the gridlock of the past six years. What effect will his inauguration have on your taxes?
Trump has proposed a conventionally Republican suite of changes: lower rates, new deductions for families, and incentives to repatriate foreign earnings. At the same time, he has proposed to limit certain breaks and cap overall itemized deduction.
However, these are just the latest of several proposals Trump floated during the campaign. Trump appears to be less focused on policy details than on broad themes, so we shouldn’t be surprised if he lets Congressional Republicans take the lead on tax planning policy.
