    -Entertainment industry employees who have unreimbursed business expenses. Think actors, reporters, other cameramen – the list goes on.

    -People who buy insurance through the affordable care act.  Trump is trying to destabilize the marketplace which will likely cause premiums to increase.

    -An estimated 80% of the benefits will end up going to the 1% by the time this plan plays out.

    -Owners of Golf Courses and Private Planes. Generally also part of the 1% above.

    Self-Employed People who have an Partnership or S-Corp or LLC.

    -People with Lots of Children- the child tax credit is going up.

    -People who don’t keep receipts of track their deductions.   The Standard deduction is nearly doubling. Don’t be fooled by this math you are losing your personal exemption.
