Trump Tax (Cuts) Both Ways

“Congress has less than two years to prevent tax hikes on the vast majority of Americans from taking place,” the Tax Foundation notes. 

“That’s because the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, a tax reform law that simplified individual income taxes and reduced tax rates across the income spectrum, is set to expire.” 

Here’s how federal income tax rates changed after the passage of so-called “Trump tax cuts”...

“We estimate making the individual provisions of the TCJA permanent would reduce taxes for about 62% of filers, leave taxes unchanged for about 29% and increase taxes for just under 9% of filers in 2026.”

In fact, if Congress doesn’t intervene, you can see how your taxes might change when filing your 2026 return — TCJA expires for taxpayers on Dec. 31, 2025 — via the Tax Foundation’s handy calculator.

Fingers crossed?

Keep reading for why a permanent TCJA might be a two-edged sword…
