Since Claire McCaskill joined the Senate, her husband Joseph Shepard has made at least $11 million through a business that buys up tax credits awarded to Missouri affordable housing developers and sells them to high-income entities seeking tax relief.

Shepard’s company, the Missouri Tax Credit Fund, operates within the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), a $9 billion a year federal program that awards tax credits to developers building qualified affordable housing projects. The LIHTC program is designed for developers in need of

The federal Land and Water Conservation Fund is set to expire at the end of the month unless Congress acts to reauthorize it.

Both the Senate and the House are working to permanently reauthorize the fund. Instead, Congress should do what it does best and not do anything.

Despite the program’s widespread popularity, the federal government should

(Commentary by Ron Boltz)

They’re called “special interests” for a reason. Of course I’m referring to the scores of lobby groups in Harrisburg who often fight against good ideas or good legislation, or push for bad ideas and legislation, depending upon how it affects them personally

Smucker Statement on Tax Reform 2.0

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a series of bills, known as Tax Reform 2.0, that will further improve the federal tax code for American families, small businesses, and entrepreneurs:

“Since tax reform was implemented last year, I’ve been hearing from constituents about ways to further improve our federal tax code. My constituents want and deserve permanent tax relief so they can keep more of their own money for years to come. They should be able to save money more easily, and American innovators shouldn’t be held back by outdated tax laws that stifle growth.

The Washington Free Beacon

BY:

Candidates in races for congressional districts across Illinois and the rest of the nation will likely be talking about federal tax reform, but one thing that’s undeniable is how much money will stay in the pockets of taxpayers.

The Heritage Foundation broke down how much each individual and household would save in taxes due to the rate cuts and a doubling of the standard deduction from last winter’s tax reform. In Illinois, the conservative policy group estimates that an average household that files jointly with two kids would save $2,381 and single filers would get to keep

An examination of the Property Tax Independence Act

Share

The following analysis of the Property Tax Independence Act, HB & SB 76 was written by Robert S. Kistler – an extremely knowledgeable and very active member of the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition. The battle over property tax elimination rages on in Pennsylvania. The unfortunate but predictable side is that there is much misinformation that continues to be spread about HB/SB 76, the “Property Tax Independence Act”, despite the fact that the bill has been around for years. Some of the misinformation is born from lack of understanding the bill, the rumor mill, and half truths. However, there is also a dark side to this battle, a well planned and orchestrated intentional negative propaganda campaign with regard to the bill. With November elections nearing
