Poll: Only 18 percent say they are paying less under Trump tax law

Less than one in five registered voters say they paid less in taxes during the first year of President Trump's landmark tax law, a Hill-HarrisX poll released Monday finds.

Only 18 percent of respondents say they are paying less in federal taxes for 2018 compared to 2017 in the survey, which was taken ahead of the April 15 tax deadline.



A majority said their 2018 tax bill was about the same or higher compared to 2017. Thirty-two percent said their federal taxes were higher under the Trump tax law. A plurality of respondents, 36 percent, said they owed about the same in federal taxes compared to the previous year. Fourteen percent said they were not sure whether they paid more or less.

Monday marked the filing deadline in most states. Trump's tax law delivered $1.5 trillion in cuts to businesses and individuals but the poll highlights how most Americans don't believe they benefited under the changes.

2. This is such sweet karma

Trump has lied so much that when he refutes this his supporters just assume it is another lie.
The fable of the little boy who cried “fake news.”

4. If you're in a state like NJ

with high property taxes that can no longer be deducted in full, you are paying a lot more.

But who cares about blue states like NJ? The media certainly doesn’t.
