Letter to the Editor: Collins’ view of GOP tax bill doesn’t match its real impact
This letter is in response to a letter written by Rep. Doug Collins and published in several North Georgia papers last week about the Republican tax bill. Rep. Collins made several questionable and misleading statements about how big this new tax bill would be for people in North Georgia. He gave an example of a family of four saving $2,082 in taxes each year. Anyone who knows anything about how to calculate taxes knows that the savings or increases depend on many factors in a family, i.e., income, deductions, etc. So while there may be a few families that see that kind of tax break, many will see much less and others will actually see increases.
