Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, which will add more certainty to the tax code, allow working families to keep more of their hard-earned dollars, and help create more good-paying jobs. The PATH Act makes permanent over 20 tax relief provisions, including allowing state sales tax deductions, increasing small business expensing under Section 179, and the research & development tax credit. The bill also includes reforms to prevent fraud and abuse and rein in the power of the IRS to better protect taxpayers.
“Delivering permanent tax relief will help Michigan families find new jobs, boost take home pay, and increase opportunities to climb the economic ladder. Farmers and small businesses will have better tools to plan ahead, grow their company, and develop the innovative products and technologies of the future. This bipartisan bill also provides an important framework for a more comprehensive, long overdue overhaul and simplification of the tax code to help grow a healthy economy,” said Walberg.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
