Affordable CONNECTICUT Act

Connecticut residents face tremendous financial pressure through the toxic combination of runaway inflation and decades of tax increases, and bad policies from statehouse Democrats. The cost of living is untenable, and residents deserve robust tax relief that would include reducing middle class income tax rates, reducing gas taxes and eliminating the Democrats’ truck tax that will further increase the costs of food, goods and services.

AN AFFORDABLE CONNECTICUT ACT

 
A package of tax relief proposals to ease the tax burden on Connecticut residents.
 

  • Cut the income tax from 5% to 4% for families making less than $175,000 a year and index state income tax brackets so that taxes paid on earnings do not outpace inflation
  • Repeal the highway use tax on trucks that starts in January 2023. This new tax passed by the Democrats in 2021 will drive up the costs of food, consumer products and services
  • Increase the property tax credit that can be claimed for real estate and motor vehicles from $300 to $500 to all families filing state income taxes
  • Reduce the sales tax and eliminate the 1% meals tax
  • Repeal taxes and fees which cost more to collect than the revenue they generate
