To: Donald Trump -, President Elect, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate


We do not support the removal of the head of household category thereby increasing the tax rate for single parent households. To ask single parents to shoulder more taxes is not fair to the parents and the families.

Why is this important?

The proposed tax changes by President - Elect Trump removes the head of household designation for single parent families. Single parent households will have to file as single, and this will cost these middle-class families significant tax increases. The election promise was to lower taxes on the middle-class not increase it on the backs of single parents struggling everyday to make a life for their families. In effect single parent families are being penalized.


Reasons for signing

  • I haven't worked in 6 months. I am sick with a serous illness. I was widowed 9 years ago. My tax liability increased $4000 without warning. Instead of getting back $2000. I have to pay $2000, I filled out my W4s correctly. This is wrong. If suck a thing was to happen it should be gradual and employers need to warn so increased taxes could be taken out.
  • It is unfair for the single parents that have to struggle with the fact that the tax rate will increase
  • YOU are supposed to be representing the majority of Americans! Not yourselves nor your largest donors!!!
