SALT Stories

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.
