House Democrats Going After SALT Cap

House democrats have proposed increasing the State and Local Income Tax deduction (SALT) to $72,500 through 2031. This is a very aggressive proposal given the Tax Cut Jobs Act capped SALT at $10,000 and impacted many states with high income taxes notably New York and California. While this may not ultimately survive, it may be used as a way to bargain a slightly higher cap than the $10,000 currently in place which does not help those tax payers that are used to itemizing their returns through Schedule A.
