The legislation delivers on President Trump’s promise of meaningful relief for low- and middle-income taxpayers, and reduces business taxes so American employers can grow, create jobs, and raise wages.   “More than 80 percent of my constituents take the standard deduction instead of itemizing on their tax returns,” Shimkus said. “We’re nearly doubling that standard deduction, which means the first $12,000 earned by individuals, and the first $24,000 earned by married couples, would be protected from federal income taxes under this bill.” Under the House-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: A married couple with two children earning $82,515 (the median four-person household income for the 15th District of Illinois) would receive a tax cut of $1,811.
