Make the Bush tax cut permanent

[Chatworthy’s tax plan includes:] Accelerate the Bush tax cut and make it permanent. In order to foster long-term economic growth, we must have permanent tax rate reductions. Accelerating the Bush tax cut will put more money in the hands of working Americans. Campaign website, ClatworthyForSenate.com, “Protect Seniors”

Reduce Capital Gains tax rate from 20% to 15%

[Chatworthy’s tax plan includes:] Reduce Capital Gains tax rate from 20% to 15%. The capital gains tax rate discourages small businessmen and women from selling their assets to upgrade their operations. Lowering the rate is pro-business and will result in a stronger economy.

End the death tax: it’s double taxation

[Chatworthy’s tax plan includes:] End the Death Tax. This unfair form of double taxation can be devastating to owners of family farms and small businesses, who often are forced to sell their assets in order to pay the onerous death tax.
