After their pilot podcast, Jessica and Kyler are back to debate what ended up being in the 2017 Tax Bill. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was actually finalized in conference, passed through Congress, and signed by the President. The siblings talk about what surprises were put in and left out.
For their pilot podcast Jessica and Kyler seek to find out what people think about the tax bill the Republicans are pushing through Congress. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that taxes are super confusing and no one really knows what is in the bill. Jessica speaks with Kara Krasnoff, a California tax preparer, on the proposed changes to the tax code. Kara describes these changes as drastic. Then Kyler sits down with Grant Mattive, whose family operates a potato packing operation and farm. Together they mull over what the new tax bill would mean for business owners. It seems that both parties are in agreement that the new plan will not improve our tax system or help middle class families. Take a listen.
