Here’s How Donald Trump’s Tax Plan Would Affect You

The Trump Administration is moving onto its next big policy fight: Dramatically reshaping the tax code.

In general, the plan would eliminate a number of specific deductions for individual taxpayers in favor encouraging more Americans to take the standard deduction and it would end some taxes that hit the richest individuals the most, according to an initial analysis by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center.
