Dallas-Fort Worth (WBAP/KLIF) – As thousands of americans are reporting lower returns on their taxes under President Trump’s new tax law, North Texans remain split on whether or not the law is good.
“I think there’s a disconnect between government and the people and what it takes to actually survive, said one North Texas man; another said, “You’re a moron, I want it, I want it now and if I don’t get what I want I’m gonna complain.”
A nurse wrote to President trump on twitter saying he lost thousands of dollars on his return, prompting a response from thousands more.
.@realDonaldTrump @GOP I am a middle class nurse. Why is my #taxrefund 59% (literally 1000s of dollars) LOWER this year than anytime in the past seven years? Nothing in my situation has changed. I thought your “wonderful” #tax plan was supposed to help the middle class? #GOPlies

Some experts say it’s too early to determine if the new law will cause Americans to lose money.
The Wall Street Journal reports that IRS data released Friday shows “about 10% of households that have already filed their returns, the percentage of households getting tax refunds is similar to last year, but average refund size is down 8%, to $1,865. The number of returns filed so far—16 million—is down 12% from the similar point a year ago.”
