Trump Visits Truck Dealer in Minnesota to Tout Tax Cuts

"I think at the end of the day you've got a very prosperous America with low unemployment, blue collar workers are doing actually higher wages than we've had in years and the blue collar workers are doing better than the white collar workers although everybody's sharing in the prosperity", Kudlow said.

Today is the deadline for filing federal income taxes under the first year of the tax cut enacted by a Republican-led Congress in 2017 and signed by President Trump. Yet recent polls show the public isn't so sure.

To check, you'll need to calculate your effective tax rate for 2017.

The SMART Act establishes a flat income tax of 17 percent on all income. Do the same calculation to determine your effective tax rate under the new law. Almost one-third of the tax returns expected to be filed this year had not been filed by April 6 (the most recent date for which IRS data are available).

While the trip was billed as a chance to meet with local business leaders on Tax Day, Minnesota likely will play a crucial role in deciding Trump's chances of winning reelection next fall as well. In that case, taxpayers may want to consider an extension, which can typically be done in a few minutes, tax experts say.
