Talking Tax Cuts with Vice President Pence

It was a privilege to join with Vice President Mike Pence at an event in Michigan on Friday to talk about growing jobs, paychecks, and a stronger economy. Since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted, the positive benefits have been resonating across the country. As a result of the new tax cut law, the IRS updated its withholding tables in the month of February, and the U.S. Treasury estimates that 90 percent of Americans will see a boost in take-home pay. Click here to learn more about how the law will benefit Michigan families.

Lowe's is one of more than 400 companies who have announced more than $4 billion in bonuses. Click here for a list.
