Treasury Secretary Says 90% of Americans Should Expect to See Bigger Paychecks With Trump’s Tax Bill (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump’s tax bill has already made a difference for many Americans. Comcast, AT&T, and Fifth Third Bancorp are just some of the companies that added a $1,000 bonus to their employees’ paychecks.
According to the U.S. Department of Treasury, the majority of Americans should expect to see an increase in their take-home pay this year, too.
On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin talked about the new withholding tables from the IRS.

Fiat Chrysler announced Thursday that it will up its investment in the United States and pay some of its employees special bonuses after the recent tax code overhaul.
CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement that these announcements reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to manufacturing in the U.S. He also cited the recently signed tax bill as an opportunity to share the savings with Fiat Chrysler employees.
The automaker said it will invest more than $1 billion in a Michigan plant and relocate production of its Ram Heavy Duty truck in 2020. That model is currently being produced in Saltillo, Mexico.
Fiat Chrysler said this decision would create about 2,500 jobs in addition to the ones that have been previously announced.
The company said it will also pay 60,000 of its U.S. employees bonuses of $2,000 each. Fiat Chrysler said these bonuses would not include senior leadership. – READ MORE
Leading up to and following the Republicans’ $1.5 trillion tax cut that gives 80% of taxpayers some much-welcomed tax relief, Democrats and their sympathetic colleagues in the left-leaning media made a big to-do of polls showing how much Americans supposedly hated being allowed to keep more of their own money. But in reality, the benefits of the comprehensive tax reform bill have already begun to impact Americans, with a growing list of companies offering bonuses, raising wages, getting more generous with their charitable giving, and finding ways to pass savings along to customers.
Add Pepco to that growing list. This week, Pepco announced that because of the bill’s game-changing corporate tax reduction (slashed from 35% to 21%), 300,000 customers in Washington, D.C. will see lowered costs.
