So there are many stories out there about people are distraught to find that their tax refunds are much smaller than they anticipated, or even worse they owe a bunch in taxes.
So there are two things going on here - first the tax cut was quite selective, and even wealthy people living in high-tax states are likely to find their actual tax rate has increased. Second, the withholding amounts might have been lower than they were in the past - thus some people will actually be paying less tax overall but will get a smaller refund than historically.
But either way, this is the Democrat’s chance to play the GOP’s own game on them - the one the GOP did with the ACA. You seize on the individuals who are disappointed and magnify their stories. This should be a major campaign theme going forward - huge tax cuts for the big guys and company owners and tax increases for the small guys.
I’d love to see if a House subcommittee could get hold of the tax returns of the people in Trump’s cabinet and disclose just how much less tax they paid. (Likely have to wait until next year to do this as most of these folk will get 6-month extensions).
