Dan Pilla first wrote about Donald Trump’s tax plan in October 2015, when it seemed unlikely Trump would become the 45th president of the United States. Not surprisingly, the plan of the past is not the plan of the present. Pilla describes Trump’s proposal in his recent Heartland Policy Brief, titled “President Trump’s Tax Plan: Among His Goals for the First 100 Days.”

Pilla writes: “It is easy to talk about tax reform on the campaign trail but quite another thing to get your policies enacted once you’re in office.” But if Trump holds true to his campaign promises – and if the plan survives what Pilla refers to as “the congressional mix-master” – there are many powerful, positive elements packed into the plan, such as an overall reduction in the federal tax burden, a lower corporate tax rate, and the elimination of several taxes.

Just two weeks (give or take) after Tax Day 2017, join Pilla at The Heartland Institute as he discusses these positive impacts, as well as some negative ones; legislative hurdles Trump’s plan may face; and recent developments in taxpayers’ rights.
