(Washington, DC) - Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the House passed
LaMalfa said: "Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the vast majority of North State residents will save money, period. The more than 70% of 1st District residents who do not currently itemize their tax returns will receive an immediate - and significant - tax cut. Far more taxpayers will now find it more advantageous to claim the standard deduction, rather than itemize, saving them more money in the process. Today we are delivering on the promise we made to the American people to make paying taxes fair and simple. Tax reform is good for Northern California and good for the country. Though it is not yet the final product, I support this bill. The Senate must pass their own version which, together with our House bill, will then require conference committee action moving forward."
