With a total combined income of $30,000 a year me and my wife get to write off the first$24,200 of our gross income thanks to Donald Trump as the standard deduction for married filing jointly. That leaves us about $6,000 worth of income to pay tax on. Guess what? That amount of tax is zero because it is below the poverty threshold. Last year I had to pay$1,373 when I filed but this year I will have to pay zero. So basically Donald Trump has just saved our family and millions of other families in the same income bracket at least $1,373 per year.
