Tax Reform

Tax Law Allows You to Keep More of What You Earn

LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Fitzpatrick released the following statement regarding the Treasury Department’s recent release of new withholding tables in conjunction with the new tax reform law:

“Tax reform was always about growing our economy and increasing take-home pay for hardworking Americans. In the weeks since being signed into law, we’ve already seen over $1.5T in economic investment by companies and, as early as next month, folks will see more of their hard-earned money in their paychecks.”

Op-Ed: More jobs, fairer taxes, bigger paychecks

When Washington politicians talk about the tax code, it’s easy to get bogged down in numbers. But tax reform isn’t about percentage points or pie charts — it’s about people.

It’s about farmers in Franconia who want their family farm to be successful and operational when their children are grown. It’s about moms in Middletown who are trying to make ends meet while saving for life’s special moments. And it’s about the small business owners in Sellersville who want to continue to serve their community and support their employees, but are restricted by red tape and compliance costs.

Fitzpatrick pushes bipartisanship for health care fix
