Klobuchar Releases Taxes, Urges Trump to Do Same

16 April 2019

Speaking at a trucking company in the Minneapolis suburb of Burnsville on Monday, Trump said he hoped his economic message would be met with enthusiasm from a state that he came within 1.5 percentage points of carrying in 2016.

He claimed his tax cuts are the largest in US history, but the facts show otherwise.

Tax Day also comes this year amid an ongoing battle for the president's tax returns.

This year's Tax Freedom Day was to fall on April 16 - 105 days into the year. But history would appear to be against him: Minnesota has not voted for a Republican for president since Richard Nixon in 1972.

The state's Democrats saw a huge overall resurgence during the anti-Trump backlash of 2018, notably in traditionally Republican suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Trump was joined at the roundtable by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Minnesota Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, small business owners from Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Florida and others.

"It is quite a bit earlier than it was mainly due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which reduced federal tax liability quite a bit", Pomerleau said.

She says it's because she believes in "transparency and accountability". Amy Klobuchar spoke out about Trump's tax bill. But so far, the tax cuts haven't delivered a major shot of financial adrenaline to most families. One poll found that just one-fifth of taxpayers were certain their taxes went down.

More evidence came from a report by tax preparer H&R Block on Thursday that said Americans were undergoing a "confusing tax experience" this season. The total number of people receiving refunds is down just under 2 percent; with the average refund down slightly more than 1 percent, from $2,864 to 2,833 this year.

Federal data also showed a negligible increase in refunds.

Another poll in March found that only 21 percent of taxpayers expect to pay less taxes, despite promises from the Trump administration that savings would be universal.
