Thousands of U.S. workers have received a bonus over the past few weeks as a result of the sweeping tax reform put into law by Trump.
A Republican lawmaker unveiled legislation that would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump’s tax reform plan tax-free — and took a jab at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with the bill’s name.
Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has dubbed his bill the “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings” — or “CRUMBS” Act.
Pelosi, D-Calif., famously referred to the bonuses as “crumbs” in criticizing the tax plan last month. Rokita’s bill would make bonuses received by workers in 2018 tax-free up to $2,500.
