If Trump's new tax plan passes and you make $500,000 a year, you're about to get slammed

  • Households making between $200,000 and $500,000 could be the biggest "losers" of the Senate Republicans' tax reform plan.
  • About a quarter of those households would pay more in 2019.
  • Fewer households with income over $1 million would pay more — of those, only 18% would see a tax increase in 2019.

Households making between $200,000 and $500,000 might be the biggest so-called "losers" of the Senate Republicans' recently released tax reform plan.

People who earn between $200,000 and $500,000 would see the most tax increases under the Senate's proposal, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, which was cited by the Wall Street Journal.

About a quarter of households earning an income in that range would pay more in 2019 under the plan, the committee said. And one in three would get a tax increase by 2023. Fewer households with income over $1 million would end up paying more under the proposal — only 18 percent would see a tax increase, while 82 percent would get a tax cut.

Overall, every income group gets a tax cut under this plan, but there is some variation within the brackets. The Joint Committee on Taxation said that over half of US households would get a tax cut in 2019 under the Senate's plan, about 9 percent would see a tax increase, and the rest would see a change of less than $100.

The Joint Committee on Taxation's assessment doesn't factor in the estate tax, the WSJ said.

Senate Republicans last week debuted their own tax legislation that contained some substantial departures from the House Republicans' version unveiled earlier this month.

Among the notable changes, the Senate bill proposes delaying the massive corporate tax rate cut until 2019, keeping the number of individual tax brackets at seven, and eliminating the state and local tax deduction completely.

Both of the House and Senate's plans propose eliminating the personal exemption and increasing the standard deduction.
