Since 1913, taxpayers choosing to itemize could deduct state and local taxes (SALT) from their federal returns. That changed in 2017, when the Tax Cut and Jobs Act imposed a $10,000 cap on the SALT deduction. This policy violates 150 years of precedent in federal tax law, disproportionately harms New Jersey, and unfairly imposes a marriage penalty on couples filing jointly.
I want to hear from you. Share how the SALT deduction cap impacted you last year, and we will update this page to collect testimonials from NJ-11 constituents.
