I have always opposed tax increases. It is my continued belief that government spending is inherently less efficient than private spending. In December, 2017 I was proud to join with my Republican colleagues to support H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which provided across the board tax cuts for individuals and corporations, while also increasing the standard deduction and child tax credit to specifically support lower income families.
By directly cutting taxes for millions of American households, the government can increase private spending within the economy without the wasteful administration of the bureaucracy. I will continue to support lowering taxes to pave the way for a strong and vibrant economy that encourages flourishing opportunities for every American.

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa issued the following statement after the Senate included a one-time provision in its version of the American Rescue Plan to make the first $10,200 of Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits in 2020 tax free. Congressman LaMalfa raised the issue in a letter to his House and Senate colleagues and did offer an amendment during House debate on this bill that would have excluded UI compensation from gross taxable income for 2020.
