    uh Oh!    Bonuses and wage raises being announced by companies based on anticipated savings.   Were Trump and Ryan right?  It’s a conspiracy!

    i think the Dems’ boat is starting to leak.

    I'll say this until I'm blue in the fucking face.  NONE of these companies needed the tax bill to pay their employees more.  It's nothing but bullshit posturing.

    P.S. If it weren't for Ronald fucknut Reagan, we never would've gotten into this mess in the first place.

    Jeff Bezos could give every single Amazon employee a check for $200,000 and he'd still be a multi-billionaire.

    The way republicans act, the men on Mt. Rushmore aren't even worthy of Reagan's presence.

    I won't lie.....I love the savings that I will get from this new tax bill.  

    But I will never let a republican call themselves the party of fiscal responsibility....not fucking ever again.

    While I think that everyone making below $500K needed a tax cut, those making more than that should pay more to keep the tax bill revenue neutral.

    My wife and I went up $65 per pay...so between us we get an additional $2600 a year (we get paid ten months a year).   Not too shabby.
    the tables are pretty aggressive though...they might be eating into your normal refund if you typically get one.

    Remember....personal exemptions are gone.  For a family of four that was a deduction of $16,400
    Good point. I m definitely going to stick it into my savings account. 
    Was that post tax, 401k, etc?

    yeah who knows if it'll be there when I retire, that's why I send as much as I can into my 403b.

    I have one and it was a big reason why I went into my field. It's nice to know that if for any reason I needed to (health, my mom's health,etc) I could retire in a couple of years.

    Well to be fair it's not all the tax bills fault...you could have this tax bill AND a balanced budget.  It's just that no one cares about that anymore apparently....especially the so called conservatives that talk a lot about fiscal responsibility.

    My wife is a tax accountant and she believes the withholding schedule that is being used right now is too low; that people could end up owing end of year when they were used to getting a refund.  I immediately jumped to the outrageous conclusion that this was intentional, to make Americans think the tax cut is more than it actually is, affecting the mid terms.  By time they find out, (Feb 2019), it would be too late for mid terms.  @Gern Blansten I think you are an accountant.  Have you studied them?  Curious as to your opinion.

    My employer sent out an email with links to the IRS sight and encouraged me to check my withholding because I could be having too little or too much taken out. My first pay since and it seems to me that I’m having too little taken out but I need a paycheck stub, last years tax return and an MS in accounting to figure it out. You better believe it’s by design. They’re relying on the laziness and stupidity of the average voter. I’ll figure mine out and let you know but I think that if I don’t adjust, I’d end up owing.

    I haven't spent too much time on the new tables yet but I have that same suspicion.  

    As I complete returns I have been using a tax projection tool in our software to look at what 2018 will look like assuming the same income and deductions.  People with kids and business owners will pay lower tax.  Most retirees aren't seeing a benefit.  The GOP kept pushing how great it was that the standard deduction was increasing but they didn't mention that exemptions are now gone.  

    This is definitely a tax cut for the rich...a major payoff for tRump and his contributors.  The working class isn't getting shit.  The child credit doubles but when a married couple with two children loses $16,000 in deductions from exemptions it just doesn't result in much savings.

    Who didn’t see this coming? Team Trump Treason voters, that’s who. Well, the vast majority of them anyway.

    I just finished a tax return for a real true Dennison fan.  Assuming similar income his taxes are going UP $2,504 next year due to the loss of miscellaneous itemized deductions.
