Stutzman co-sponsors permanent tax relief

Press release from Indiana 3rd Congressional District Congressman Marlin Stutzman’s office:

Stutzman Co-Sponsors Permanent Tax Relief

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Marlin Stutzman voted against a divisive tax increase bill. “We need to take care of all Americans and not pick and choose. Small business owners need to know that the government will allow them a fair chance to succeed.”

Congressman Stutzman voted against H.R. 4853, this bill, once signed into law, not only creates a tax increase for many small business owners with income of $200,000 or more, penalizing success in a slow or stagnant economy, but does not protect seniors who are dependent on their investments.

Congressman Stutzman signed on today as a co-sponsor to the Pence-DeMint Tax Relief Certainty Act, H.R. 6415 which would make permanent tax relief for all Americans. “Small business owners need a solid and fair playing field, which will lead to job creation.” H.R. 6415 would:

  • Make permanent the 2001 and 2003 individual income tax relief for all hard-working Americans, preserving the 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33% and 35% income tax brackets, rather than allowing President Obama and Democrats to increase the top tax bracket to 39.6% and increase taxes on the lowest earning Americans in the bottom 10% bracket.
  • Permanently repeal the immoral and unfair death tax;
  • Prevent the tax increase on the maximum tax rate on capital gains and dividends income for all Americans, rather than allowing the Democrats to increase the rates to 20% and 39.6% respectively, from the current 15%; and
  • Permanently patch the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) by increasing the AMT exemption.

Congressman Stutzman represents the 3rd Congressional District of Indiana. The 3rd District contains all of Dekalb, Kosciusko, Lagrange, Noble, Steuben, and Whitley counties; as well as parts of Allen and Elkhart counties.
