The Payroll Tax Cut in Connecticut
In Connecticut, a middle class family earns $83,797 per year, saving $1,676 in taxes under the current payroll tax cut. If the tax cut is not passed, Connecticut families will be hit with a crippling tax hike. Democrats in the Senate have proposed to extend and expand the payroll tax cut from 2% to 3.1%, putting more money in the pockets of middle class Americans and injecting money directly into the economy.
