Donald Trump Jr, Kamala Harris

Donald Trump, Jr clapped back at California Rep. Kamala Harris who tweeted misinformation about President Trump's tax reform bill.

Trump, Jr. retweeted Harris' tweet that referred to Trump's tax cut as a "middle class tax hike."

"The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year," Harris tweeted on Tuesday. "Let's call the President's tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%."

Don Jr. responded: "Of course refunds are down. People are paying less in taxes and the code is simplified. A refund means you overpaid and got money back. When you pay less the refund will be less. Do you really not understand that?"

Donald Trump Jr tweet

Frustrated taxpayers continue to complain loudly that they received less money in their tax refund checks this year.

It's as if American taxpayers believe tax refund checks are end-of-year bonuses from the IRS.

The only people who complain about smaller refund checks are misinformed taxpayers who don't understand that if they keep more money in their paychecks they don't overpay the government, and they get less money back.

When President Trump signed his new tax reform plan into law in December 2017, taxpayers began seeing more money in their paychecks the following year.

Trump's new tax law eliminated some standard itemized deductions while increasing single filer deductions to $12,000 and married and joint filer deductions doubled to $24,000.

The more simplified tax code allows people to take the standard $12,000 deduction instead of itemizing their deductions on Schedule A forms.

The new tax bill also increases the child tax credit from $1,000 per child to $2,000, which benefits single mothers with 2 or more children.

If you are expecting a tax refund check, it simply means you overpaid the government out of your paychecks instead of keeping that money and saving or investing it.

Basically, you give the government free no-interest loans out of your paychecks, which the IRS then repays you in the form of a tax refund with no interest.

The IRS doesn't want taxpayers (especially low-income taxpayers) to stop overpaying their taxes.

Uncle Sam appreciates the billions of dollars in interest-free loans from taxpayers who don't understand how the tax code works.

Wealthy taxpayers keep more money in their paychecks so they have more money to spend. They don't expect to receive tax refunds because they saved their money in interest-bearing investment funds rather than overpaying the government.

Low-income and middle class workers get less money in their paychecks because they overpay the government in order to get a bigger refund check.

Self-employed taxpayers don't receive refunds because they rarely overpay their taxes. Self-employed people hire accountants to pay the government exactly what they owe and not a penny more.

Like the wealthy, self-employed taxpayers re-invest their money back into their businesses rather than overpay the government.

  • Phillybruh

    The code isn't simplified and the increase in paychecks wasn't that significant. They also took away a lot of deductions people used. And People who broke even usually not owing and not getting a refund find themselves owing.

  • Look@m3

    I go on Monday. I always purposely over pay so it is like my savings account i guess. I had to pay uncle sam back one time trying play around with them darn exemption...Not happening again!!

    But we all know its more to paying more or less through out the year. He's an idiot!

  • iWasteTime

    He should have "schooled" the American people including his dad's base on what that meant .... lol
    Also explain to them why so many deductions are gone.
    Those fly over stater's who rely on SNAP and INCOME Taxes are mad!

  • Elevated Soul

    Kamala Harris is the latest Demoncrat who think the people in her party are stupid and for the most part, they are. This is why she feel she can tell them anything and they will believe it.

    Yesterday someone sent me a clip of a lie she told on The Breakfast Club. She stated "she listened to Tupac abd Snoop Dogg in college while smoking weed". The problem is that she graduated in 1986 and they didn't come out until the 90's.

    I love how Don Jr. get back at Demoncrats.

  • HotInCleveland

    The problem is that Dump annouced that folks would get more money in their paychecks but didn’t say they would owe the money bc they paid less taxes. He announced a tax cut and nothing else. Welp, it pays to do your own due diligence particularly when it comes to what the Cheetoh and Chief says.

  • Ni Ni

    Maybe grad school, law school???

  • Carrington

    Which means we now have to figure out how to make up the interest the government earned on the "overpayments" since everybody got a whopping $30 more on their paychecks.
    On another note - NOW we're correcting Tweets?

  • MsJC

    Not only is it a middle class tax hike, it only serves the wealthy. I mean really , why do million and billionaires need a damn refund. They have plenty of assets, greed is a sin! I'm not even religious, but I expect nothing less from an orange, toupee ass criminal!

  • MsJC

    I only knew when I saw more money on my paycheck, that at the end of the year the IRS was coming. What I don't understand coming from a man who evades taxes whenever he and his family see fit!

  • Yoni7

    When you finally make ends meet........they move the ends. LOL

  • MsJC

    Actually welfare recipients did quit well this year! Their refunds are booming. It's the hard work middle class folks making over $85k annually that are feeling this. Please get your facts straight!

  • Carrington

    Many families look at tax refunds as "savings" since, the odds are, they won't necessarily be ABLE to put those savings away throughout the year. So, if someone is getting $30-50 more as opposed to a $3-7K lump sum annually, they tend to be able to do more with that lump sum of cash as opposed to that internet bill payment monthly.

  • Cheese eggs

    Oh please.......dump Jr can't "school" anybody on anything. If his daddy wasn't rich he'd be working in some companies mail room.

  • Fire & Ice

    I can't take Kamala serious. As soon as I realized it was her on the breakfast club, I changed the station ?. Btw good morning everyone ?

  • Renee26

    I always claim my maximum number of allowances cause I need "all" my coins on my paycheck. Some people lower them mid-year to get a bigger refund... To each their own.

  • WhoKnew

    I thought that hi-liter whitey was in prison.

  • Fire & Ice

    As soon as I realized it was her on the breakfast club, I kept it moving.

  • WhoKnew

    One thing I think a lot of people turned their heads on is that you cannot and I mean CANNOT trust a damn thing Dump says. Not one thing.

  • HotInCleveland

    He is a full service Moron. I’m surprised someone doesn’t have to tell him when to blink.

  • SpillyNillie

    It's as if American taxpayers believe tax refund checks are end-of-year bonuses from the IRS.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    They are...LOL

  • Fire & Ice

    That's right...you need all of your coins!

  • therealashland

    Not even mail room, he has the personality of a dead cat

  • SpillyNillie

    Define allowances...

  • HotInCleveland

    My cousins and them always get between 8k-12k each year. They make less than 25k annually but they all have at least 3 kids.

  • Renee26

    The lower income people always get the most benefits from tax refunds. They work minimum paying jobs and qualify for housing, food, childcare and healthcare through the government. They get minimum taxes taken outta their paychecks, so they can qualify for those benefits, then they get fat tax refunds back... throw in the extra they get for claiming the kids. If they have more than 2 or 3 they usually let somebody else claim the others and make more money on the backend.

    Baby...this is what they call tax time ballin ?

  • HotInCleveland

    Oh, I see you know the game. That is EXACTLY what they do! I refuse to go in any mall or chain restaurant during tax time.

  • Renee26

    Right... The low income people I know always get between 5-8k back...yet I have 1 child make decent pay and owe

  • Rayne

    I do this every six months. The first six I collect mine and the other I lower them and they get theirs.

  • HotInCleveland

    Don’t put that in my spirit. Gonna have me in the streets looking for good potato salad for lunch.

    The Two faces of Kamala Harris

    "But as district attorney, she refused to hand over the names of police officers whose testimonies had led to convictions despite the officers’ arrest records and histories of misconduct. As attorney general, she also opposed instituting police body cameras statewide and stood against a bill requiring her office to investigate fatal police shootings.

    Members of California’s Legislative Black Caucus (who are fellow Democrats) criticized her over the latter, as did Melina Abdullah, a Black Lives Matter activist and professor of pan-African studies, who commented: “This is not the time for timidity. … Martin Luther King said if you tell black people to wait, that means never.”

    These are just a few of a large group of civil rights advocates and activists who criticized her on the matter, including San Francisco public defender Jeff Adachi and Phelicia Jones, an organizer with the Justice for Mario Woods Coalition and a former Harris supporter, who wondered “how many more people need to die” before Harris stepped in, and accused her of “turn[ing] your back on the people who got you to where you are.” Although Harris’s defenders have singled out a small number of her critics who are white, complaining that it’s “the same three people” criticizing of her, it’s not hard to find a range of people who criticize her record, many of whom are people of color."

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    As a tax professional (yes I wear many hats at some point I got obsessed with earning certifications and degrees) but as a tax professional you broke this down to the simplest form. It’s hard trying to explain to someone that if you didn’t put anything in how do you expect to get something back it’s called a REFUND that alone says what it is. I always advise my clients especially those who get huge refunds back to invest that money into something or put it in an interest bearing account until you figure out what you wanna do investment wise. I also tell them how they can pay less through the year but not to expect a huge refund at the end most everyone it’s for the refund at the end ?????

  • Mita

    Why would anyone tell their business like that. Sounds like an idiot. No one know how much my tax returns are and what is with this Baby daddy mess? Yuck! Sounds like she is a ho is that is her pimp. Once the return is deposited I just quietly continue on with my business.

    I guess thats fair, but that is significantly different than the headlines intimating that people had to pay more in taxes last year. Why didn't people notice that their take home pay went up (less taxes withheld) at the beginning of last year when the new, lower tax rates were instituted?

    No one ever said their refunds the following year would increase or stay the same. The law reduced their tax burden.

    For me it's mental, because at the end of the year I don't want to owe anything. So I feel fine overpaying the gov't right now, knowing I'll get the refund, instead of feeling nervous like I might owe THEM something.
    Also, I'm human and I err like everyone else, and I know if I get money back in one lump sum I'll put it straight into savings versus buying stupid.

    Yevette Carnell is not a bot and she started the hash tag

    .THE CREATORS OF the hashtag — Antonio Moore,
    an attorney in California, and Yvette Carnell, a political commentator —
    are neither Russian nor bots and are demanding an apology.

    Carnell told The Intercept that he thinks calling out ADOS is an effort
    to delegitimize the grassroots movement they’ve worked to cultivate and
    to “undermine a real debate that we have about Kamala Harris within the
    black community.” For years, Moore and Carnell have been doing regular
    YouTube and radio shows together where they discuss issues like
    reparations and the racial wealth divide under the lens of “native
    descendants of American slaves.”

    “We thought that there wasn’t enough policy and policy initiatives,
    policy proposals for Americans who descended from slavery and had
    ancestors who lived through Jim Crow, reconstruction, all of that, so we
    came up with the hashtag American DOS or ADOS,” Carnell said, adding
    that they started the hashtag around two years ago.

    Moore said that accusations like Reid’s are a McCarthyite tactic in the same vein as the attempts to publicly discredit Martin Luther King Jr.
    “It’s troubling, the lengths that these people will go to undermine
    authentic Black advocacy in order to prop up the Democratic
    establishment,” he said in an email. An MSNBC spokeswoman declined to
    comment.

    Elimination of personal exemption! SALT deduction capped at $10,000! This isn't about a refund. Many people are paying MORE TAX.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    A lot of time when ppl get money back it’s already spent. We always leave money on table when we receive a refund because my husband pay in a lot. We just pay car insurance up for a year, pay personal property tax and put the rest on a vacation. lol

  • Trey

  • Dun Dilly

    Kamala can't even figure out the dates of her weed smoke and Pac's album releases. Bye

  • Coco Mcluvin

    It's not just about how much they make because I know people with various situations and that's really what it depends on. And I understand tax liabilites, which is why I advise my friends to be careful when going exempt, especially the ones that don't have kids or go to school. Yet people keep saying it's called a refund because you get back what you put in and that's not always the case.

  • Star

    He eliminated a lot of the itemized deductions forcing people to take the standard what is not being talked about is that some people owe more and owe that never have. Harris is right it is bad news for the middle class.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Right...I keep seeing people say you got more in your paycheck but does that equate to the amount now owed? People are talking huge differences and I for one didn't really notice any difference in my check, lol....

  • Gamer?? Chick

    You are right about the overpayment.

  • Nikki J

    He’s not in jail yet? ?

  • Nicole Nikki Robbins

    no change in what I brought home, and this year we went from getting a few thousand back to a few hundred. at first we had to pay in, something we have never had to do only thing that saved us was we mentioned our daughter started college in the fall and was able to claim that. #45 needs to get the hell out of office ASAP all the fools and idiots that voted him in, just slap yourself and don't make the same mistake twice come 2020....if his ass ain't in jail for being the traitor that he is.

  • Eileen

    Thank you for that information. It is badly needed tooany people see the refunds as bonus not me I needs my money during the year

  • Eileen

    Really it is not as if the dummercrats have anyone coming through their cesspool for President.

  • Blue

    the whole family annoys me.

  • Blue

    He need to worry about how he's gonna stay out of jail.

  • Omandesert

    Yep!

  • Coco Mcluvin

    See..my point exactly! People are acting like it's this small little change and people are ignorant to their taxes. I do my mom's taxes and she made the same amount of money. I'm trying to figure out how if the child tax credit increased(she has two minor children still) and she got back $600 less(I can't remeber which credit was reduced, off top) than she did last year. I know I'm no fool and I'm pretty good with math. I read up on the changes each year and I'm a little confused. I get the tax rates have changed and the tax brackets have been adjusted. Something isn't making sense but I'm gonna keep researching until it makes sense.

  • J2PC

    A lot of people prefer that the IRS or gov't manage their money for them to because they will spend it as they go, otherwise, if left in their paychecks. Tax Refunds means that you overpaid the gov't.

    Why not choose to go back to taking out more taxes from paychecks so that people can enjoy their savings via refund? Let the gov't save for them. In turn, the gov't gets to earn interest off of their money. It's a feel good win-win.

  • Sandra

    I find it hard to believe he schooled anyone on anything.

  • Boonella

    Let's hope so....

  • Bossy704

    No idea what you are talking about. I'm not a troll. The black presidential candidate will be mixed race.

  • Bossy704

    White people are afraid of dark skinned people. They would not elect a dark skinned person at this point in our history.

  • Bossy704

    You are a more "palatable" black person. I did not make these rules. Nothing has changed.

    What about all the exemptions that Trump removed? However, the removal SALT revealed something a number of folks had already figured out.

    Was SALT exemptions created in Blue States to help cover up the fact that many homes & apartments were/are overpriced just to generate more taxes? The promise of big exemptions convince buyers to take a chance on buying homes overpriced. Now, they are left holding the bag & realizing that it is not a myth that their overpriced is really not worth the value given.

    If you really want to know why there are so many homeless people where there are major companies creating jobs look to those who are eager to always drive up the cost-of-living via 'arbitrarily increasing rent & home values' to generate more taxes, but diverting blame on companies being in town when companies are needed to create jobs.

    Those tax exemptions once claimed were the real bonuses. Trump removed them from the working middle class to help the top wealthy or 1%.

    He also removed SALT created in BLUE states to satisfy their reasons for overpricing the value of homes. Now, buyers are left holding the bag.

    I've seen a number of homes I would call very old, small worn out garbage pieces in Blue states that were 3x the cost of much newer & nicer looking homes found elsewhere around the country. It was a gimmick to generate higher property taxes at the homeowners expense because now they know for sure that they've overpaid on their marked up homes in those states.

    Indeed.

  • dontgetblocked

    Auntie, thanks for breaking it down. You really shouldn't have a tax refund because it means you're paying too much. The new tax laws let you have your money immediately.

  • R Smith

    Exactly! I've read stories that they received 5grand last year and this year they got $500!

  • R Smith

    Yup. The wealthy are the winners!

  • sunni_daze

    I understand that "his" people is pissed on Twitter about their refund amounts.

  • Faithz

    Let them dig we need somebody to clean fish, and clean up behind people like the Republican N as ty as.

  • Dick Steel

    Says a NOOOOOOOBODY

  • Alec Sophianopoulos

    That only makes sense if people's take-home pay is more, but from what I've seen, that's not the case. People are taking home the same amount and also not getting refunds.
