Larry Kudlow says there could be a tax cut before Election Day

Top White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said Thursday that President Donald Trump could put forward a tax cut before the 2020 presidential election. “You very may well see a new rollout of additional middle-class tax relief and small-business tax relief,” Kudlow said in an interview on Fox Business Network.

Larry Kudlow says there could be a tax cut before Election Day

Top White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said Thursday that President Donald Trump could put forward a tax cut before the 2020 presidential election.

“You very may well see a new rollout of additional middle-class tax relief and small-business tax relief,” Kudlow said in an interview on Fox Business Network.

Kudlow stressed that “there is nothing in the near term” because “we believe the economy is quite healthy.” “But longer run, why not?” he added.

Kudlow also confirmed to CNBC that he supported a tax cut proposal floated earlier Thursday by Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla.

“Had a great conversation with my friend @larry_kudlow yesterday about our economy,” Scott tweeted Thursday morning.

“When we get back from recess, we should immediately start working on a plan to reduce taxes for middle-class families & workers by the amount the Treasury is collecting in tariffs,” the senator said.

In a text message, Kudlow told CNBC, “I do support the proposal” put forward by Scott in their meeting. Kudlow did not say if he had asked the president about the plan.

A spokeswoman for the Florida senator said that Scott “has not yet spoken to the president on this proposal, but is urging the Administration to start immediately cutting fees to help American families.”

Kudlow made similar comments to reporters at the White House shortly after his television interview.

Kudlow also told Fox that he still expected Chinese negotiators to meet with Trump administration officials in Washington in September to continue trade talks.

The deputies for Washington and Beijing had a “productive conference call” Wednesday, he said.

The remarks from the top economic aide came amid a week of mixed messaging from the White House about possible tax cuts and other proposals to stimulate the economy.

On Wednesday, Trump said that he’s “not looking at a tax cut now. We don’t need it.”

That statement appeared to be completely at odds with the president’s comments from just a day earlier, when he said in the Oval Office that he has “been thinking about payroll taxes for a long time.”

Less than a day before those comments, a White House official had denied that a payroll tax cut was being considered: “More tax cuts for the American people are certainly on the table, but cutting payroll taxes is not something under consideration at this time.”

And that denial came in response to The Washington Post’s report that White House officials have been floating a payroll tax cut as a way to head off a possible economic slowdown.

When asked Thursday to provide more details about the possible preelection tax cut, Kudlow said, “I don’t want to get in a lot of detail on this because, I don’t want to get ahead of the curve.”

But he did say that “the idea of some short-term payroll tax cut fix — it doesn’t work, it never works, it has no lasting impact.”

He added: “The personal tax rates could easily be lowered, and probably the brackets could be shrunk. That’s a thought.”

And “we might even kind of work through a way to help our friends in some of the state who are concerned about the shrinkage of the tax deductions there … the SALT taxes,” Kudlow said.

But he cautioned not to take those suggestions as promises. “I’m just — these are for examples, OK? For examples,” he said.

What a payroll tax cut would actually mean for your wallet

RyanJLane | Getty Images

President Donald Trump has considered new payroll tax cuts to let American workers take home bigger pay checks. But such a move could have negative consequences for both individuals and the economy, a number of experts warn. The president told reporters on Tuesday that he is “thinking about” cutting payroll taxes. The move, however, would have nothing to do with talk of a looming downturn, he said. “Payroll tax is something we think about, and a lot of people would like to see that, and that very much affects the workers of our country,” Trump said. On Wednesday, however, the president said the economy is still too strong to warrant such a move.

How payroll taxes work

Payroll taxes are withheld from workers’ wages and are used to fund government programs, notably Social Security and Medicare.

You don’t use your best play in the second quarter. You wait until you really need it at the end of the game. Jeffrey Levine CEO, BluePrint Wealth Alliance

For Social Security, employee wages are currently subject to a 6.2% tax up to $132,900. Workers also pay a Medicare tax of 1.45%. Employers match what workers contribute by also kicking in 6.2% toward Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare. Workers who earn more than $200,000 individually, or $250,000 if they are married and filing jointly, pay an additional 0.9% Medicare tax. Self-employed individuals pay 12.4% toward Social Security and 2.9% for Medicare. They also are subject to the Medicare surtax for wages over $200,000.

Trump reverses course, says he's not considering tax cuts, because of 'strong economy'

President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he departs the White House in Washington, DC, on August 21, 2019.

President Donald Trump insisted Wednesday that his administration will not cut taxes to turn aside an economic slowdown — only a day after he said he would consider tax policy changes.

It follows several days of mixed messaging from the White House on whether it would respond to growing concerns about a potential recession. Trump has spent the week arguing the U.S. has the strongest economy in the world — while urging the Federal Reserve to chop interest rates, a step typically taken during cycles of economic weakness.

A White House official first denied a report Monday that the administration would consider a payroll tax reduction. By Tuesday, Trump said he was “thinking about” cutting the levies — though he stressed that “whether or not we do something now, it’s not being done because of a recession.”

But the president backtracked on Wednesday, tamping down talk about either trimming payroll taxes or indexing capital gains to inflation. Trump’s comments continue the president and his administration’s struggle to clarify whether and how it would change U.S. tax policy in the face of recession fears.

“I’m not looking at a tax cut now. We don’t need it. We have a strong economy,” the president told reporters on the White House lawn when asked if he would consider a payroll tax cut.
