‘I Voted For You…But You Screwed Us’: Trump Voters Angry They Are Paying More In Taxes Thanks To GOP Tax Law




The tax-filing season started last week — and some taxpayers might be in for an unpleasant surprise.

Some 21% of taxpayers could be “underwithheld” this year, meaning their employer did not take enough money out of their paychecks to cover their tax obligations, according to the Government Accountability Office.

CNBC notes that those at risk of “falling short on their tax obligations include taxpayers who claimed personal and dependent exemption deductions under the old tax law but won’t under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, gamblers on a winning streak, others with unreimbursed employment-related expenses, and people who can’t claim full state and local taxes as itemized deductions.”



Rawstory notes that the tax bill also “capped deductions for taxes paid to state and local governments, while massively increasing the amount of money you must donate to qualify for a charitable giving deduction.”

Dozens of early tax filers have taken to Twitter to express their shock and anger at President Trump’s signature tax cut plan after learning the hard way that the majority of the law’s generous benefits have gone to corporations instead of the middle-class.
