Pete Buttigieg on Tax Reform

Democratic Presidential Challenger; IN Mayor

 


Financial transactions tax, wealth tax, and estate tax

Mayor Pete Buttigieg has criticized the 2017 tax reform bill signed by President Trump, saying it just provided tax cuts for the wealthy--again, nothing new when it comes to the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. However, the mayor has hinted at a few tax increases that he would consider as president, including: He has also called for a "more equitable use of the estate tax," which could possibly mean lowering the exemption amount back down to pre-2010 levels.

The wealthy should pay their fair share in taxes

During an interview with CNBC's John Harwood, Buttigieg said "the reality is there are some people who are not paying their fair share. Some people frankly are getting a bit of a free ride on the productive energy of this country and this economy." He said he would consider˙raising the marginal tax rate for high-earners. Additionally, he said a wealth tax makes sense, as does potentially expanding the estate tax for the biggest and wealthiest estates.
