Tax Reform

Since I was first elected to Congress, my mission has always been to help Arizona families. I believe through stopping wasteful government spending and bringing forward measures that help create good-paying jobs and shrink our debt, we can build a healthier economy and secure the economic future of America's children. I was proud to help write the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, legislation that was signed into law in 2017. This legislation was one of our country's most sweeping overhauls of the federal tax code in over three decades.  

Each year after passage of the bill we have consistently seen great news for the economy. Prior to the pandemic, our monthly jobs reports were showing record-low unemployment, thousands of jobs being created, and an increase in wages across the spectrum, particularly for minority groups and women. It is imperative for us to be promoting pro-growth policies like the 2017 tax cuts to help drive economic growth, as well as ensure that our tax code works for our nation's families and keeps the United States economy competitive.
