CABINET/TAXES/TREASURY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/STEVE MNUCHIN: “Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday [4-20-17] the Trump administration plans to release its tax reform proposal ‘very soon’ and promised that a sweeping overhaul of the tax code will get done.
Speaking at a conference of international financial firms in Washington, Mr. Mnuchin said Treasury is ‘pretty close to being able to bring forward what’s going to be major tax reform.’
‘This will be the most significant change to the tax code since Reagan,’ he said, adding that the plan ‘will pay for itself’ by boosting economic growth.
National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, speaking at the same conference, said he has been working closely with Mr. Mnuchin on a proposal that would tackle both individual and corporate parts of the tax code.”
