Trump's tax plan is already in trouble with his own party as plan to axe state and local tax deduction comes under fire from Republicans

Trump's tax plan is already in trouble with his own party as plan to axe state and local tax deduction comes under fire from Republicans --The White House's tax plan proposes to raise $1 trillion over 10 years by eliminating the deduction for the state and local income taxes people pay --That's drawing howls of protest from Republicans whose states charge high income tax rates | 29 Sept 2017 | As President Trump prepares to sell his tax plan to the nation's manufacturing lobby on Friday, his best-laid tax plans have already drawn objections from some fellow Republicans who are fuming over the decision to end deductions for state and local income taxes. The situation will pit the White House against members of Congress from states that pile high income taxes on top of what the federal government takes from paychecks. High-income Californians, for instance, pay as much as 13.3 per cent of their income to the state in addition to their federal taxes. New Yorkers can pay up to 8.82 per cent.
