Representative John Curtis (UT-3) issued the following statement on the House passage of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act Conference Report.


“Today, with my support, the House delivered on our promise to cut taxes for all Americans and to simplify our burdensome tax code,” Rep. John Curtis said. “The more people learn about this bill, the more they like it. This legislation helps Utah families keep more of their hard-earned money by doubling the standard deduction, by increasing the child tax credit to $2000, and by maintaining the mortgage interest tax deduction to encourage and make home ownership more achievable. By cutting corporate tax rates, this bill will boost economic growth and American prosperity.”
