McHenry County taxpayers praise GOP tax reform
Several McHenry County taxpayers recently praised the GOP’s proposed tax reforms in a press release from Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL).
"With taxes always going up in IL, I love that Congressman Roskam is doing the opposite and working to decrease our overall tax burden," Michael Mika, of Lake in the Hills, said. "This bill is setting us on the right path."
Tom Musschoot, the president of General Kinematics, which employs more than 150 residents of Illinois’ 6th District, also praised the tax reform.
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is an important step forward toward comprehensive tax reform that will simplify the code, lower rates and spur manufacturing job growth in Illinois," Musschoot said. "Congressman Peter Roskam deserves special credit for listening to the needs of his constituent businesses in helping to craft this legislation. I look forward to working with Congressman Roskam to advance comprehensive tax reform, which will help improve our global competitiveness and allow us to create more jobs in America.”
Roskam, who is the chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee, believes this tax reform will have positive results for the middle class.
“Today we took the most significant step on real tax reform than we’ve taken in over 30 years,” Roskam said. “Americans are yearning to see real tax relief and the work we’ve done on this bill respects and rewards hardworking, middle-class families in my district and across the country and allows us to grow a healthy economy and more jobs.”
