Donald Trump’s Plan for Your Taxes Might Be EXACTLY What He Needs to Win the White House


by Bill Callen | Top Right News

Most of the attention the media had paid to Donald Trump have been a hysterical and distorted reaction to his “controversial” remarks on illegal immigration.

However, the GOP frontrunner’s stances on other issues are very insightful.

In his book, “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” published in 2011, and updated for the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump laid out a plan to transform America’s tax code, and it is amazing.

Trump’s code, which he calls the “1-5-10-15 income tax plan,” is a simple way to fix our nation’s broken taxation system, without putting the strain on any particular group of people.

Under Trump’s tax plan, those making up to…

  • $30,000 per year will pay 1 percent in federal income taxes
  • $30,000 to $100,000 will pay 5 percent
  • $100,000 to $1 million will pay 10 percent
  • $1 million or above will pay 15 percent

It’s clear and fair,” wrote Trump on his tax plan. “Best of all, it can be filled out on the back of a postcard and will save Americans big bucks on accountants and massive amounts of time wasted attempting to decipher the tax code,” according to Conservative Tribune.

Trump also wrote, “Imagine your paycheck was 40 percent higher than it currently is. What could you do with 40 percent more wealth? How many jobs and opportunities for others could you create?”

“The longer you really think about it the madder you will get,” he wrote, “especially when you consider the waste, fraud, and abuse the federal government traffics in as it inflicts its self-defeating policies on hard-working Americans.”

And the refreshing, “no B.S.” candor Trump has shown on most issues was on display in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” where unlike most candidates we’ve seen, Trump actually stated that he tries to pay as little tax as possible.

I fight like hell to pay as little as possible, for two reasons. Number one, I am a businessman, and that’s the way you are supposed to do it. And you put the money back in your company and employees and all of that.”

And he surely echoed the view of millions of Americans when he added, “But the other reason is that I hate the way our government spends our taxes. I hate the way they waste our money, trillions and trillions of dollars of waste and abuse. And I hate it.

Trump’s proposed tax plan is fair and shows real promise at fixing what has arguably become America’s biggest headache. It doesn’t tax the poor to the point of bankruptcy, and it doesn’t punish the rich for being successful.

    Thing about Trump is that in all his policies, they are simple yet very effective. And cost US minimal in many areas. Like strictly upholding our current illegal immigration laws…..the illegals would self deport. Take their jobs away, fine anyone who hires them, take benefits away and repeal anchor baby citizenship. Stop the goodies and they stop coming and won’t want to stay.

  • Harvey Vick

    This tax plan is awesome but I can see why others in his party are scared of it, mainly because it makes so much sense.

    • Aggie Carlson-Chiarillo

      yep, they would have to pay some bucks out

      • NukeWaste

        That isn’t the problem. It isn’t what they would have to pay out of their own pockets in taxes. It is the drying up of donations from companies that want tax breaks.

  • Steve

    Donald Trump has a business mentality that is sorely lacking in DC.

  • Kypat

    Go Trump. We are with you.

  • William Stearns

    That is why we need to get rid of all the lawyers in congress, and elect some business men with good old fashioned money sense

  • cos filiberto

    sounds fair,,and would help all lower income families,,Keep It Simple Stupid,,KISS

  • Thomas Joseph

    This would be an immeasurably better plan than we currently have, but the FAIR TAX is by far the best option that we have to make America great again. If you don’t REALLY know about it, you owe it to yourself & kids to learn about it. No more IRS. No more audits. No more filing. Keep 100% of you pay. Get taxed only on what you buy.

  • Terry G

    Can’t have a simple solution to a government created problem. That would put too many civil servants out of work.

    • Toot

      So they will have to get jobs in the private sector like the rest of ‘Merica! Be a good lesson in having to budget their income and live like the rest of the citizens in our country, alot of them from paycheck to paycheck!

  • Kc Tomlin

    I like his proposal, as i am sure most of you do as well, the kicker? is making it happen, it sounds simple to do, but we are not at the point where that decision can be made, Our congress is so criminal, making this happen will be tougher then a $2.00 steak, The first step, we can make happen, and thats getting Trump in the oval office. Every one i talk to, say they are voting for Trump, along with my inlaws, my wife, and myself. We can make this happen, but its not going to be easy, you all know that. GO TRUMP

  • Mary Curry

    The IRS budget is over 11 billion dollars. By dumping a lot of the dead weight and removing the no-limit credit cards from their hands we could ave another 5+ billion. Apply that to the DOD or SS and we all gain from it.

  • Mike Bruffett

    he seems to good to b true he gets elected i fear another Kennedy 🙁

    • Melanie Schielder

      what was wrong with Kennedy? besides the fact he tried very hard to defund the Fed Reserve, and tried very hard for a great deal with Cuba, a deal that would have made that country more democratic in nature

      • Joe Spennato

        Dumbass he was referring to the assassination of JFK. Dealy Plaza, Dallas Texas, morning of November 22, 1963.

        • Melanie Schielder

          don’t call me a dumb ass, just because I knew what he did for this country, as well as why it got him assassinated, you’re the dumb ass for thinking I don’t know histories events, and if he was talking about his assassination, then he would have stated it, you retarded ass

          • NukeWaste

            Mel, you are getting needlessly upset. Joe is more of a literal thinker than you are. Kennedy wanted to stir the UFO/space alien hornet’s nest with a stick. Now Putin is calling bozo out on it.

      • The MadScot

        Melanie, I do not believe Mr Bruffett meant anything derogatory in regards to JFK. JFK was about to expose the truth about what was really happening in our Government, and a major part of why he was assassinated. He was going to name names and his brother Robert was going to prosecute them JFK actually was a Fiscal Conservative Democrat. A rare breed of the time. He wanted to stay out of Vietnam as much as possible. He only allowed (reluctantly) the MACVSOG operate in country and ONLY as Military advisors. The US had Treaties in place with France which also Obligated us to support them. And since VietNam AKA “French Indo-China” was a French Colony… So Kennedy did, with humanitarian aid and Military training Advisors. Kennedy was just about to sign an Executive Order to end the Federal Reserve when he was assassinated in Dallas Texas. Lee Harvey Oswald was not the actual shooter, but a patsy fall guy for the powers that operate behind the curtains.
        The Mob’s part in the entire process was to use Jack Ruby to kill Oswald before he had a chance to blow his cover or expose other’s involved. The Mob got a temporary reprieve until RFK could be dealt with after LBJ became POTUS. The hit on RFK was given the green light within 24hrs of LBJ’s taking the oath of POTUS.

        LBJ was the quintessential Bigotted Liberal Southern Democrat. He despised negroes. As a Senator during WW2, was part of a group of Politicians who opposed the Tuskegee project, and did everything he could to derail it. He refused to allow the training units to utilize an abandoned airfield located in rural Texas for their training base.

    • People thought Obama might be the next Kennedy…

  • Sean G.

    Boom. Done. Now let’s make it happen America.

  • Had Enough

    Trump 2016 !!!

  • The MadScot

    Ok this sounds good on the Fed Tax. Now how about the Soc Sec and mediscare taxes? You know, the Wealth Redistribution taxes? The ones we cannot get refunds on if we over pay? You know who won’t like this tax plan? The RINO’s, Socialists, and Libturds. Oh I was being redundant wasn’t I.. You know what they will say. “you are literally taking the Food out of the mouths of Babies and Single mothers, and the Disenfranchised oh boo hoo hoo hoooooo!!!!”

  • JustMyOpinion

    really like this plan!
    TRUMP 2016

  • Kanray

    How about covering what he will do to those who DO NOT pay? A good example being Al “Rat” Sharpton. I like his plans. Always said Government should be ran like a business. Another thing, put someone in charge of the Military that has experience.

    • The MadScot

      Allen West would be a great SecDEF.
      As for taxes, I’m all for a flat tax or going back to Tariffs on inports, perhaps a consumption type tax no higher than .05% on all goods & services purchased.
      The entire concept of taxing a person’s labor was the brainchild of a Communist btw.
      And the entire Federal Tax law was enacted illegally behind closed doors, and then improperly ratified. Technically it is entirely UnConstitutional and cannot be enforced. The corrupt lawmakers have over time stacked law upon law upon law on the illegal tax law so that they can hide their misdeeds. Then turn around and say “it’s the law” even tho they know it’s an illegal one.

  • sickofit 58

    One of the issues with this tax plan is this. If you earn $99,999.00 in a year you would pay 5% tax or $4,999.95. Earn one dollar more $100,000.00 and you pay 10% tax or $10,000.00 How is that fair? That extra dollar in income cost you an additional $5000.00 in taxes.

    • Doug

      It would be graduated, you pay 5% up to 100k and 10% on anything over that.

  • Hows_That_Change_Working_ForYa

    I would like to see a new president & Congress put a stop to giving “Foreign Aid” to countries that hate the US. We give $50 BILLION each year in handouts ,,, Russia and China are on that list ??? Who the hell approved this ?? We need Common Sense back in the White House.

    • The MadScot

      1st Step is to get rid of the Federal Reserve bank. Our founding fathers never intended for this country to have a “central bank” and that is exactly what the Federal Reserve is. It is the reason this country’s Government is in so much debt. Why us and our grandchildren for the next umpteen generations are up to our necks in debt thanks to the Federal Government uncontrolled spending and borrowing. End the Fed, cancel all interest owed to the “Fed” and to the corrupt banks. Start fresh with no debt owed.

  • Ted M. Vaughn

    Trump’s new tax proposal::::: How will this be done? When a person over 65 files taxes How will it be done? Count all income from anyplace? Social Secutity? Retirement Pension? Income from Investments such as annuities etc. ???

  • John Doe

    Sounds good to me, but will people still be able to claim things like college tuition and such?

    • NukeWaste

      No, no tax deductions at all. We could cut 75% of the Federal Government and still have a bunch of useless political jobs Plus all the ‘crucial programs’ that you feel are worth our attention. Though I think that I would not consider most of them ‘crucial’. Except to demoRats who live on kickbacks and bribes.

  • Alexandra

    Interesting but how much income would this generate the government to pay for crucial programs?

  • Ricardo

    I love this guy ! He’s got my vote for sure. Let’s see Hillary the liar, possibly any of the career politicians that’ll do nothing for the citizens but lie, or someone who knows that this country is a business and needs to be run by someone who is competent and doesn’t just lie to the voters. Yup, Trump !

  • rhjunior

    My plan is better, easier and even more fair. Everyone pays 10%, period.

  • Carmelo Junior

    Free market don’t work like that. In Cuba that could work.

  • serving justice

    I like his Tax plan, I would like to see a Flat tax instead across the board or a consumption tax, that means everybody pays… I should not have to hire a CPA to do my taxes every year. FIRE the IRS!!!!!

    • The MadScot

      In order to get rid of the IRS we will also have to end the Federal Reserve as well. Which I fully support! The Government was never supposed to “Borrow” money in order to operate. It was supposed to be a pay as you go. If the Govt could not afford to do a thing, then it didn’t do it until it was properly funded without borrowing or taxing the populace into oblivion.

  • Poisoned1

    Its a great idea but if you put some into FREE bitcoins your wealth can grow even more..

  • Frank Loftice

    Now that makes sense

  • LaRae Bailey

    how damned refreshing this would be but so would an honest president

  • RBear

    Vote him in, enact this (as well as others) code, watch government shrink. We all win.

    Learned something a long time ago that rings true across many disciplines:

    The essence of all good design is simplicity.

  • Carol

    A Great Idea . But Congress and senate would put it down . If it’s not there Idea & some big business pays them off ,it doesn’t have a snowball chance in H_LL !! I think we should clear congress & The Senate and get some for the people !
