"I wanted to start at 15 to get there", Trump said. Under the proposal, the corporate tax rate would go from 35 percent to 20 percent. It is the highest rate among developed nations, although many companies pay a lower rate, if any tax at all, by using loopholes and deductions. It is an attempt to assuage the demand for lower taxes among wealthy party donors without being perceived by Trump's working-class base as giving a windfall to the rich. "Finally, bring back trillions of dollars that are now kept offshore to reinvest in the American economy".

Limits the maximum tax rate for small and family-owned businesses to 25 percent.

Donnelly has said he thinks tax reform should benefit the middle class, but he has not said yet if he would support Trump's proposed plan. Trump and the Republicans were putting the final touches on the plan when the Democrats were brought in.

"This framework is focused on supporting American jobs, on making taxes fairer and on growing families' paychecks", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement on the Senate floor Wednesday.

White House and GOP leaders have reportedly agreed on a tax proposal that would raise the lowest individual tax rate from 10 to 12 percent. Almost half of Americans do believe taxes rates will fall for business and the wealthy.

The outlines of the plan were described by GOP officials who demanded anonymity to disclose private deliberations.

US President Donald Trump is calling for major tax cuts for business in a speech, as a longstanding Republican effort to overhaul the US tax code takes centre stage. Delivered at 11 a.m. Monday-Friday. "It's too complicated", Trump said. That's led to what the plans says is "the justifiable feeling that the system is rigged against hardworking Americans".

The new tax plan was hammered during months of negotiations between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, National Economic Director Gary Cohn and top Republicans in the House and Senate, a group known as the "Big Six".

The GOP plan for the first major rewrite of the USA tax code in 30 years also says corporations will be stopped from shipping jobs and capital overseas. Trump is expected to speak about the plan on Wednesday afternoon. The catch is, along with that, he wants to increase the standard deduction to $12,000 for a single filer and $24,000 for those who are "married filing jointly".

At one point, Trump said that getting the corporate rate down was the key to getting the economy to grow.

The repeal of the tax on multimillion-dollar estates, reductions in the rate corporations pay to 20 percent and even the idea four tax brackets instead of seven are also amongst some of the details.

Deductions would remain for mortgage interest and charitable contributions.

The White House and Republicans plan a formal roll out later Wednesday.

At a time of slow but steady US economic expansion, the Trump tax-cut package has some support in Congress, even among Republican fiscal hawks who only a short time ago routinely opposed deficit-financed fiscal proposals.

The Republican plan "would result in a massive windfall for the wealthiest Americans and provide nearly no relief to the middle-class taxpayers who need it most", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, told colleagues on the Senate floor.
