Hurd Statement on Tax Reform
WASHINGTON, DC - Following today’s vote on historic tax reform, U. S. Rep. Will Hurd issued the following statement:
“The last time our tax code saw substantial reform was 1986. This is long overdue and the people have called for fairer, simpler tax reform for decades.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act simplifies our tax code and alleviates the burdensome tax filing process so that lower and middle-class individuals – not the wealthy – can receive much-needed financial relief. Families have more money in their pockets, small businesses can prosper, and more jobs will be created so folks can get ahead. This fix is what we need to strengthen our economy for the future.”
