house Bill H.R. 188

Should the $10,000 Limit on the State & Local Tax Deduction Be Eliminated?

Argument in favor

The state and local tax (SALT) deduction is a major source of tax relief for residents of high-tax states, such as New York. The SALT deduction cap hurts the middle class, and should be reversed to ensure that families living in high-tax states aren’t punished for where they live.

Yes, and to pay for it, raise taxes on the super rich people. Anyone making more than $50 million should pay more in taxes.

This hits middle income earners hard when they live in states with high property taxes.

It was not at all helpful and has only hurt the middle income group. Yet again.

Argument opposed

The SALT deduction primarily benefits those who are upper middle class or better and isn’t a major factor for the majority of middle-class families — most of whom don’t itemize their tax returns. Eliminating the SALT deduction cap increases the deficit to help the rich.

No, the rest of the country should not have to subsidize high tax states. The people in those states need to elect more fiscally responsible leadership.

    Taxes on top of taxes already paid. I believe everyone needs to pay their fair share- but this is not fair to people living in high tax rate states that derive state revenue principally from these taxes instead of consumption and usage based taxes. In general there are way too many hidden taxes buried in utilities, gasoline, cell phone, internet, and other things. It is easy to dump these taxes on folks because they are largely unseen. I would rather pay a higher income, property, and consumption tax and do away with all the hidden stuff. At least I would know what taxes I am paying, to whom and for what.

    Taxed on taxes! Death tax! Property taxes (rent to live in your own home)! When will it stop? Allow us at least some breathing room!

    I would also like to see many other of the tax deductions that were taken away from The People, who should not be paying taxes for corporate tax breaks, reinstated. In particular the deductions for charitable donations and medical expenses.

    He paid for his jackass tax plan on the backs of the middle class. Cutting that deduction hurts many Americans and certainly helped eliminate any benefit the middle class would get from his ridiculous tax plan for the wealthy. Repeal the plan and him!

    Yes it should be eliminated. It’s just wrong to pay taxes on money you’re paying taxes with.

    It was just a spiteful attack on states that properly pay for their own stuff. Maybe those states should not send the feds more than 2% more money than they get. How about the welfare queen states elect more fiscally responsible leaders and learn to pay for their own crap.

    Placing a limit on state tax credit was nothing more than another device designed to punish the middle class and offset the deficit increase caused by the “tax cut.” Has the swamp been drained yet?

    Once again, we paid more in state and federal taxes due ONLY to this law. $22,000 more thank you! Repeal it and tax the 1.5%!

    Forcing the middle class families to pay for the tax breaks for the rich is immoral.

    It’s good policy for high property tax states that believe in social engineering via penalizing the “rich”. I don’t want my Federal income tax used to subsidize these high property tax states.
