WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today participated in a press conference marking the last Tax Day Americans will file their taxes under the old, outdated, and burdensome tax code. Having championed efforts last year to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Senator Capito joined several Republican Senate colleagues this morning to highlight how the new tax law is already helping West Virginians keep more of their hard-earned money, provide for their children’s education and their families’ needs, and give back to their communities.
"Out with the old, in with the new: I think this is a good reminder on Tax Day of 2017 that Tax Day of 2018 is going to be a lot different,” Senator Capito said during the press conference. “Tony and Jessica Hodge of Hurricane, West Virginia are using their dollars to do home repairs, but also to dedicate dollars to their church to help people who are suffering from the opioid epidemic. It’s important to realize in their story, tax reform hits the individuals, but it also hits every segment of the population.”
Senator Capito continued: “Out with the old, in with the new. And the new is brighter and brighter every day as our program unfolds and some of these larger programs within the tax bill become a realized effect.”
