Nothing is perfect with all the thousands of pages of IRS tax code, however, the big changes the new tax reform law enacts will make a difference for a majority of tax payers. Personally, I think a common sense outcome will be a growing economy in many sectors resulting in more jobs and perhaps growing wages.
I just hope average Americans embrace a new attitude toward debt. It is not going to matter if the economy gets better if millions of Americans continue to sink themselves in unnecessary debt. Tax relief certainly has the potential to help Americans pay down debt and get in better personal financial shape.
