Cobb experts: Average resident will see lower taxes (Marietta Daily Journal)
Impacts of new tax law 'depend on what household looks like,' according to KSU economist
KENNESAW, Ga. (Dec 23, 2017) — Experts around Cobb say most residents will see a reduction in their taxes under the new tax law passed by Congress this week.
The balance between the reduction in tax rates and elimination or capping deductions will likely result in a lower tax bill for most people, but every case is different, explained Roger Tutterow, economics professor at Kennesaw State University and director of its Econometric Center.
