Undo the SALT cap: Cosponsor H.R. 1142, the Stop Attacks on Local Taxpayers (SALT) Act of 2019

March 29, 2019

We write to invite you to cosponsor H.R. 1142, the bipartisan, bicameral Stop Attacks on Local Taxpayers (SALT) Act of 2019.

deduction and more than 80 percent of those filers earned under $200,000.
