Most Say Trump’s Tax Reform Not Likely to Cut Their Own Taxes

Most voters agree that they’re overtaxed but don’t expect a tax cut even if Congress approves the big changes in the tax code proposed by President Trump.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most Americans pay too much in taxes. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that only 14% believe Americans are taxed too little, while 21% say the level of taxation is about right.
