How Will The Trump Tax Plan Affect You?

How will incoming President Donald Trump’s tax plan affect individual and corporate taxpayers alike? Trump has promised on several occasions that his new tax scheme will help most individual, business and corporate taxpayers save taxes. Some of the plan’s provisions will lower the business tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent. He says that he will reduce the seven individual tax brackets that are currently used to only three.
