Trump Tax: Uncertainty Ahead


My fellow American taxpayers,

On Tuesday night, Donald J. Trump was elected as the next President of the United States. Whether you are happy, upset or indifferent with that outcome, one thing is for certain, uncertainty with the tax code lies ahead. ‘Trump Tax’ is here. However, this is nothing new; the tax code is always evolving, it has been for the past 100 years. Just take a look at what a 1040 tax form looked like in the year 1913:


That’s right…one page. Today, some taxpayers have a tax return the size of a High School textbook. Hammernik & Associates wasn’t around in 1913, but we have been staying on top of the tax code for the last 30 years. Over that time span, there have been many overhauls, tweaks, and changes to the way you report your income tax today. No matter the uncertainty that lies ahead with your tax return, rest assured that Hammernik & Associates will use our proactive approach to keep or clients informed and prepared for possible change.

With that being said, Donald Trump wants to change your tax return. Does this scare you, or are you intrigued that his proposals might save you money?
