Your Taxes

Since day one, one of my top priorities in Congress has been tax reform and to lower the tax burden on American families and ensure small businesses have the capital they need to be successful and create jobs. As Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Committee responsible for writing the tax code, I have been able to have a direct impact on our nation’s tax laws and fight against tax increases. And on December 22, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the most sweeping overhaul of the U.S.tax code in 31 years - The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1). And the economy hasn't stopped thriving since; paychecks are going up, people are investing more, business and consumer optimism have reached record highs, and the unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in 60 years. There is a new hope. We are changing the culture in Washington where Congress waits thirty years between improving our tax code while our global competitors continue to distance themselves. Those days are over. America’s going to stay in the lead pack. Every year we will work to make America more competitive, more innovative, and make sure our tax code is family friendly.

If you have questions or comments on something that can be improved, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to make sure this law continues to improve lives.
