STATEMENT: Reps. Gottheimer, Sherrill, Suozzi Statement on Inclusion of SALT Relief in Build Back Better Act

WASHINGTON, DC –– TodayRepresentatives Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), and Tom Suozzi (NY-03) released the following statement on the agreement to include SALT relief in the Build Back Better Act:

“We have been fighting this unfair, targeted tax since its inception in 2017. This agreement to address the cap on our State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction will effectively eliminate the undue burden for nearly all of the families in our districts who’ve been unfairly double taxed for the last four years. This fix will put money back in the pockets of hardworking, middle class families in our districts and help ensure that our local communities can continue making the investments that we need. We’re confident that with this agreement, we can move forward on this crucially important package and we will continue working to ensure that this tax cut gets signed into law to deliver this relief to our constituents as soon as possible.”
