Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Chris Stewart (R-Utah) released the following statement after voting in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“For the first time in decades we are able to provide the American people with a dramatic new tax code that is simple and fair. Utahans deserve more jobs, fairer taxes and bigger paychecks.”

“An average family of four living in Utah’s 2nd Congressional District will receive a $1,445 tax cut. The majority are also going to be able to complete their taxes on a postcard sized tax form. The standard deduction is going to increase significantly, keeping more money in your pocket. The child tax credit will increase, providing you with more support for your family. Tax benefits are being preserved, helping you afford some of life’s most important investments. All while you are enjoying the benefits of a strong and growing American economy.”

“This new tax code will change lives, energize our country, and get our economy thriving again. Once tax reform passes in the Senate, you are going to see a remarkable difference.”
