Ivanka Trump, Marco Rubio

The final tax reform bill will pass the Senate today after Florida Sen. Marco Rubio agreed to vote yes on the bill. Rubio earlier threatened to vote no on the tax reform bill because the child-care tax credit wasn't high enough.

The final tax bill, which President Trump will sign, entitles Americans to a $2,000 child tax credit for each child. That doubles the previous child tax credit.

But Rubio was a hold out because the refund portion of the child tax credit was only $1,100.

That means Americans are entitled to use the tax credit ($2,000 for each child) to offset what they owe the government. But if they owe nothing, then they are only entitled to $1,100 of (instead of the full $2,000) in their tax refund checks.

Rubio said the $1,100 refund was not high enough. He wanted the refund increased to $2,000 as well. Rubio reportedly said, "If it stays at $1,100, I'm a 'no.'"

After meeting with the conference committee, Rubio changed his vote to a yes, meaning the tax bill will pass today.

According to GOP Rep. Kristi Noem, [Rubio]'s going to get it: The refundable part of the child-care tax credit has been increased to $1,400 per child."

Other provisions in the Senate tax bill include:

1. Doubles the standard deduction to $24,000

This means anyone who earns $24,000 or less a year pays NO income tax. You keep every dollar you earn.

2. Decreases standard tax rate for families to 12%

Families who earn $45,000 or less annually will now pay 12 percent income tax instead of 15 percent.

3. Simplifies the tax form

The new tax form is so simplified that you can prepare your taxes in 15 minutes instead of 15 hours!

4. Kills Obamacare insurance mandate

The new tax bill kills the Obamacare insurance mandate that forced Americans to pay a stiff fine if they didn't have Obamcare. The Supreme Court called it a tax.

The new changes take effect in February 2018.

    Basically this only benefits people with children -_-

    Sigh, We're doomed!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Read between the lines: If you're making less than $24K then you also won't be getting a child tax credit.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you read the post? It also benefits people who earn less than $24,000 a year ( no taxes), families who earn $45,000 a year (12% tax rate) and small businesses like me.

  • Kanyade

    doesn't help me any

    More of Sandras pro Trump propaganda. I asked earlier and I'll ask again, seriously who's paying you to cosign Trumps rhetoric? You've become a mouth piece for white supremacy and it's disturbing.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's your opinion, chile. I am trying to inform my readers about things that benefits them. Only a dumb ass would call a $2,000 child-care credit "propaganda". Keep electing Democrats who put abortion clinics in every black community to keep our population down. Have you checked the population statistics lately?

    It don't help me anyways

  • Breitbart_Savior

    If it helps Americans then I won't stupidly be against it simply because Trump's name is on it.

    If anything, should Mueller pin something on Trump (legally) his presidency is ruined and this will be the only good thing the GOP accomplished is over a decade.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I keeps all my money during the year and offset it with write offs just like the white folks. I rather the $2000 per child credit than a $1400 refund. So I ain’t mad...

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Parents who earn less than $24,000 a year will pay no taxes, so they won't get a credit of $2,000 per child. BUT they will be entitled to the child-care tax refund of $1,400 per child. That's why Marco Rubio wanted it increased from $1,100.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    FYI: If you have 4 children and you earn less than $24,000 a year, you will not pay taxes. But you will get a refund check for $5,600.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Whether it's $2,000 or $1,400, this is an incentive for you to have more children as God commanded. ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So after finding money for millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations, Marco Rubio had to basically put a gun to the Republicans' heads to make them give more money to working families with kids.
    That's today's Republican party for you.

  • BorisBlack1

    How much was it previously

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The refund checks for single moms with 6 or more kids are going to be lit! ????

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Have some kids, start a business or both ?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think the government should require single moms with a bunch of kids to take finance classes before they receive their refund checks. Some of these women will get $8,400 and won't know what to do with that kind of money.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I dont hate it because it has Trump's name on it. I hate it because it's terrible. It's going to add $1-1.5 trillion to our national debt. That's like you living in a house and asking your kids 25 years from now to pay the mortgage. It's a bad bill that the next generation will ultimately pay for.

  • Armymom20

    Yeah, that part may benefit many people but what about the rest of the bill?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Previously it was $1,000. I don't know what the refundable portion was. Previously you couldn't claim the $1,000 if you earned less than $3,000 a year.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Times like this is when I wish I sold weaves and spandex clothing. The beauty supply stores, nail shops and stores like FashionNova are going to profit tremendously.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    True. It's not too late for you to start an Instagram boutique or sell items on eBay.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There's a reason the Republicans are trying to ram it through with no public hearings. This tax bill is a gift that mostly benefits the rich way more than the working class & middle class... and they know it.
    They'll pay a price on election day though; I'm quite sure of that.

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Thanks for the information, Sandra !

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you read the post? For me, the best part of the new tax bill is it kills the Obamacare mandate. The IRS won't tax you for not having insurance.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And what have the Democrats done for you?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're welcome, hun. I'm really happy for the single moms. Something had to be done to help them.

  • casiepriest33

    That's where you're wrong. I stopped voting. No one has promised blacks anything, yet we still vote. While Hispanics, Jews and other "minorities" benefit off our struggle. Sandra my issue with you is that you always push the Republican propaganda. These people are open white supremacist. Calling protesters fine people. Shame on you!

    Who did it take 15 hours to file taxes? If you have that many assets, etc., perhaps you should have hired an accountant. I can't.

  • JV

    I appreciate that Rubio dug in for the child tax credit, but let's not pretend like very rich aren't the big winners here. Just read the CBO for yourselves, which was last updated around the first of the month. (A negative sign means people in those income brackets pay less in taxes).

    Again, that's your opinion. You are wrong about me. I don't give a damn about Republicans. I care about this country and the children in it.

    The Democrats lost the election because of their sex politics. People were tired of Obama pushing the LGBT agenda on their children. Even he admitted Clinton lost because of him.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It helps single moms and families who earn less than $45,000 a year. It helps low income people who will now pay no taxes.

  • Renee26

    When did low income people ever have to pay taxes....if they didn't previously owe back taxes? That doesn't seem new to me

    I can’t get over that episode of Doug and Carey when Doug tried to buy an ice cream truck with his return ??....

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm sure some single, childless people who earned $24,000 a year had to pay some taxes.

  • Renee26

    Did they take away the limit of dependents that can be claimed too? There was a limit on the number of children that the credit was given for....hence people letting other people claim their additional children (illegal but still)

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Every child under 17 qualifies for the tax credit. People were allowing single people to claim their children on their taxes. ?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Why are the Dems complaining? Y’all were perfectly fine with forced Obamacare and stiff fines that were mandated. In addition, you were still paying high taxes. So what’s the real issue?

  • JV

    That's not good news for older and/or sickly citizens who rely on younger, healthy people signing up to avoid the fine. Premiums may spike out of control. Hopefully like Rubio, Collins digs in on.. whatever she thinks will stabilize the markets now.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm referring to single people who don't have dependents and don't own property. I always owed. If I got a refund check it was about $1,200.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's not true. Premiums spiked out of control after Obamacare. I remember when I thought $300 a month for insurance was too much. Last year my premium was $600 a month. I let that ish lapse.

  • JV

    Even if you believe that to be true -- which I don't -- it's very likely the removal of the individual mandate will send premiums higher, possibly sending some markets into a death spiral. I don't know of a credible source which suggests otherwise.

    A woman is stepping down for sexual harassment
    ____________________________________________________
    Kansas Dem Andrea Ramsey, accused of sexual harassment, will drop out of U.S. House race. Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances. Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006.Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from Leawood, was one of the Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018 in Kansas’ 3rd District.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I did some more research. I don’t like how individual tax breaks is only for 7 years yet corporates is permanent. Republicans wholly believe in this “trickle down” effect. It did let work when they tested it out in a state (?). Corporate is going to hoard the money and still invest in automation- some corporation even admitted they are. I don’t see how this will create more jobs.

  • OP2

    That is because all the companies who have moved overseas [to get away from the ever-growing taxes, union demands, taxing environmental laws, etc.] are not stupid enough to waste billion$ on relocating back to the US with risking the uncertainty or promises of just 7yrs.

    --isn't the goal to bring them back so more Americans can have worthwhile jobs rather than them hiring more robots (automated machines), immigrants and temporary Visa workers??

    Democrats are anti-businesses aka job killers which is why the inner-cities are blighted (crime-infested with hopeless feeling, struggling minorities subjected to liquor stores, dollar stores and dead-end jobs).

    Just like Black Wall St. of Tulsa, etc., Blacks in Detroit & Flint (automotive & music industries) were also thriving when pro-businesses Republicans were in charge.

    Then, the democrats took over with their greedy tax-squeezes, unions & policies. Companies...bounced and liberals drove the Black communities into the ditch to look just like the Southern Democrats days of Post-Slavery & J1m Crows. -Get the facts...know our history because we've been lied to. ijs

  • OP2

    The penalty fee via their income-tax refund suggested that they were uninsured anyway and obviously paying to help hoist up those of us who are able to get insurance through Obamacare.

    People should have a choice in life and not be forced to pay for healthcare that they cannot afford nor want for the sake of taking care of other people. ijs

    People with gov't jobs or other jobs that provide healthcare benefits will be okay. -Obamacare is for those with preconditioned illnesses or too poor to afford other insurances. The only way it can sustain is to force those who do not want it to pay money anyway via a penalty.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I agree. I am not a Republican nor a Democrat. I am unrepresented. Both sides are liars and greedy politicians. I don’t know everything but that is fact.

    I googled the Senate Representatives and only one of the faces is brown.

  • OP2

    That is a process & takes time because it cost billion$ to relocate overseas and will equally cost billion$ to doubleback or move their companies back to the US. -something that cannot be done overnight or in the less than 1yr time he's been in office.

    Step 1: First, he needed to put this law for permanent corporate tax cut in place to give those companies the trust & incentive to move back to the US. -hopefully, the jobs and rest for American workers will fall in place.

    Blacks need to make sure we are raising our own to start preparing for a list of those STEM Degrees like other ethnicities in on the game of winning in life. --instead of simply being lazy or teaching each other how to be dysfunctional (behave our way to all types of negative statistics and for-profit jails & prisons like slaves). ijs

    What tax bracket is that! Trust me you will not being paying a $1 more than you were already paying under the 30yr democrat tax policy. In fact, tax cuts will allow us to take home more in our paychecks. Those with minor children will get slightly more if not the same exemptions & savings under the democrats budget.

    This new budget is better all around. -simply compare the current democrats tax cuts already in place to this one. I saw a better deal across the board. Why not compare and see the facts for yourself instead of listening to the lies reported? ;)

  • OP2

    Republicans are pro-business where the never-ending tax squeezing liberals are job killers and the reason for companies just bouncing overseas to get away from it all. That has left the inner-cities blighted, hopeless and with dead-end jobs depending oh 'Hope.' -the welfare policies of the democrat in order to survive instead of being thriving entrepreneurs and workers with good jobs. ijs

  • OP2

    It's all relative. If you are poor because you have a dead-end job, you are getting more money in your pocket via not having to pay out more in taxes from it. -and if you have children...those tax credits will equal a refund check. Take a class in economics & business. The more you make...the more your taxes will align to match it.

    Poor people can't expect to get as much in taxes that folks who are doctors, lawyers, etc. work hard to bring home. -again, it's all relative. Poor people on their end will get a little something too where they will have dollars more in their pocket than the past decades under the democrats tax system.

    Just to be fair: if a person has a part-time/deadend job they're little tax exemption will match that accordingly. Can't squeeze more waterbills out of nothing. Welfare is other people's tax money to sustain the poor. Therefore, that too is some type of tax savings for doing the minimum to get by. -aka something for everybody...the trickle-down effect. lol

  • OP2

    The unions will just move those pedophiles or molesters around to other jobs. --parents need to get busy warning and educating their children on what to look out for and report back to them. ijs

    Teaching each other to be dysfunctional and behaving for for profit prisons when I am watching the news where this 18 year old white girl got a 10 year old riding in a car with her stealing packages off people porches. Black folks negative statistics as being dumb and not prepared when we have a president who is dumb everyday who can't even read and yet we are WAITING on him to be President. We all saw that white boy who couldn't even answer simple law questions yesterday during his nomination for a cushy lifetime job. Oh yeah he went to one of the "best and brightest" ranking schools. We can also tell he passed his white privilege through that. When Johnnie Cochran went to court prepared and knocked the ball outta the park. Let's not forget that other nominee for EPA when she couldn't answer simple questions. So why we gotta be acting right when other people are given the luxury to act the way they wanna act. That is that "Slave" mentality you are talking about. Your jail is your brain. Act like you got some manners Massa watching. Our people are prepared. I don't know what kind of small circle of people you hang with or some limited material you are reading to make it seems what you are stating as fact to validate but from where I stand we got it going on. From the way Dump talks he act as if it will come overnight and I do know the process will take some time. I stand by what I said even the cushy tax break Caterpillar got the jobs still left the country.

    I work in finance. Lol. I am very clear on what I said.

    Once again, genius comment. 100% truth.

    Really? This year, unemployment has hit record lows in 13 states, the lowest rates since the feds began tracking state-level unemployment 40 years ago.
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/hill-unemployment-rate-hit-record-low-13-states-year/

    - Also, National unemployment is at its lowest level since the year 2000.
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/hill-unemployment-rate-hit-record-low-13-states-year/

    - Also, in November unemployment for Hispanics hit a historic low of 4.7%, lowest since the feds began tracking those numbers in 1973.
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/legalinsurrection.com/2017/12/great-jobs-report-bad-news-for-dems-hispanic-unemployment-rate-at-historic-low/amp/

    And finally, in 2017, the Dow hit a historic high of 23,000, first time in history ( it was only at 18,333 when President Trump was elected).

    White liberals may complain about Trump, but best believe they, and hispanics, and asians, and every group EXCEPT blacks are investing in the market, getting better jobs, and improving their lives in this thriving economy. Blacks are the only dummies who would rather waste time hating Trump, than creating financial independence for their children.

    Of course it will with all the inaccurate information you give Sandra

    sadly, that's most likely the exact 'solution' they'll turn to (after all, it worked for the catholic church) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • OP2

    Birds of a feather: Why does it seems like hollyweird liberals & the catholic leaders meet and greet and support each other vehemently like no other group?? Could it be they both have an understanding of using illusions & imagery to manipulate the sheeples? lol -look how they meet & greet the pope as if he were their #1 buddy.

    Whatever happened to Biblical related conservative standards and values from a church claiming to be pure, Holy? --and you shall know them by the fruit that they bear (aka all the dirt that has come out). ijs

  • NicoleZee

    Um, how can you benefit from any tax credit if you do not work??? Someone told me that single parents collecting some type of disability can file taxes. How??? For what??? Why file taxes if you have no job??? The government is one big confusing cesspool of f*ckery.

  • NicoleZee

    How the hell do these women get that much money when many of them do not even work??? The hell??? I've met some single moms who do not work but yet they file taxes. On what??? I need to find me a scammer or hacker to do my taxes so I can collect thousands for my one child!!! LOL! I couldn't get the child tax credit for last year because my son does not go to daycare or school. He's 2 now and still does not go to daycare. I'm wondering when I'll get me a big refund check like some single moms

  • NicoleZee

    Self employment on what??? I took a tax prep class a couple of years back but I still don't understand how someone who does not work receives a tax refund check. And doesn't the government require some proof if you are self-employed??? Sounds to me like there are some unemployed people that scam the government and the government is so dumb that they fall for this crap every year from people. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    Same here, I don't get it at all. If you do not work, how are you entitled to a tax refund??? My refund this year was small even though I did work but didn't make a lot. Plus, I couldn't even claim the child tax credit because my son is not in daycare and I guess I didn't make enough money or whatever the stipulations are.

  • Not Down With The BS

    You're talking about black Wall Street as if the US government didn't bomb it, killing thousands and that their white neighbors weren't burning their homes and businesses to the ground. Any economic success that occurred in the black community was destroyed.

    You don't understand why blank communities don't do well? ? That's not a democrat vs republican issue. That is a white vs black issue.

  • Faux Gibbler

    This means under $24,000 then no social security.

    Amen!

  • Armymom20

    I did read the article. That is part is great. I am looking at long term though.

  • Maxima

    Blacks in Detroit, MI were facing serious shakedowns and brutality from the police; henceforth, the riots of 1967.

  • Maxima

    How much of those stats are people who have left the labor force due to giving up, retirement or marrying rich?

  • Maxima

    Tax cuts for corporations should be conditional. Move jobs overseas, lose tax breaks.

  • OP2

    True. However, their own Black people have been used by the industry to programmed the minds of poor Blacks to have a mall mentality to floss overpriced man-made material crap made on the cheap in China. Those types of finance classes will be ran by those with a design to keep the status quo or align their own pocket. -all they need is to go to their local library and check out a Suze Orman finance DVD. She is real and explains it it layman's terms to help people from all walks of life. Otherwise, I can offer the same for free. lol

    On the real, those moms are often so poor that investing that desperately needed fund is to their own detriment. For relief, they and their children need necessary things & help now via such refund!

    I doubt if they'll get $8,400 via dead-end jobs. If so, many are so destitute that they can't wait to finally to get their kids off the floor sleeping on just a raggedy, smelly mattress. The kids can now have dressers & bed frames not to mention much needed school clothes & winter attire. The rest will go to credit card debt, utility bills if not household furniture.

    The following year, they could use it buy a reliable used vehicle unless they are living in the inner-cities where it wouldn't make sense due to high fees & taxes just to park or keep any vehicle. -in turn, a tax return in the 3rd yr could be used to relocate from the harsh inner-city to renting in a semi-rural/suburb provided that they have a vehicle in place. This will help them to finally get their children out of a hell-hole and the influences of such negative environment with failing schools.

    A viable plan that they could put into place to accomplish goals in the near future, one year at a time. You have the platform to spread this in layman's terms to get them to thinking and not overwhelm them with that which is not feasible to their particular situation. ;) ijs
