Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the new IRS wage withholding tables take effect and millions of Americans bring home more in their paycheck. 

LaMalfa said: “When the President signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law, some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle labeled it the beginning of Armageddon. Already, we can see that couldn’t be further from the truth. Millions of people across the country have already seen significant bonuses as a direct result of this new law, and now millions more will see a change in their paychecks, some even starting today. The new wage withholding tables take effect this month, and as a result, many of the law’s critics will notice a pleasant surprise in their bank balance. This isn’t crumbs – this is allowing taxpayers to keep more of their hard earned money for their own purposes – and it's just the beginning. The typical North State family will save $1600, and as more aspects of this new law take effect, I expect it to only continue to get better.”

Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
