Heller meets with President Trump’s Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin and Business Leaders on Tax Reform
Dean Heller continues to lead on tax reform, optimistic with Trump as president
“Now that the Obama Administration is out of the way, we can get something done to lift the burden on businesses and the middle-class.” — Dean Heller
Yesterday, Dean Heller welcomed President Trump’s treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, to Nevada to discuss Tax Reform.
Together, they had a roundtable discussion to hear from employers around the state to learn even more about Nevadans’ priorities as Washington gears up for tax reform.
As a member of the Senate Finance Committee and a leader on tax reform, Dean Heller introduced Secretary Mnuchin and said he’s confident that his background in business will serve as an asset as Congress begins to take action on tax reform.
“As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, I’m looking forward to working with the Secretary on this issue and having a seat at the table to make sure that the final product is what’s best for Nevada. We are all on the same page when it comes to making sure that Nevadans get to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks. When we lower rates for businesses, we give them the chance to better compete, allowing them to hire, invest, and expand — creating more jobs in our communities. And when we simplify the tax code, industries from construction and real estate to hospitality and high-tech will thrive.”
— Dean Heller
Heller is a long-time advocate for fixing the country’s broken tax code and lowering rates for families and businesses.
Earlier this summer during a U.S. Senate Finance Committee hearing, Dean expressed strong support for comprehensive tax reform that will allow Nevadans to bring home more of their hard-earned tax dollars and bring a full economic recovery to his home state. Dean continued to reinforced that our tax code is too complex, too costly, and creates unnecessary challenges for Nevada’s families and small businesses.
Dean Heller believes Comprehensive Tax Reform should meet the following requirements before implemented:
- Provide tax relief for working U.S. taxpayers and small businesses
- Protect the rights of taxpayers and ensure IRS accountability
- Foster savings and investment
- Promote economic growth and job creation
- Reduce rates for all U.S. taxpayers
- Protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare
- Support homeownership — I strongly support the mortgage interest deduction as well as providing relief to homeowners who are still “underwater” on their mortgages
- Should not penalize marriage or families
