“Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker.”
FACT CHECKER | Trump is citing a list maintained by Americans for Tax Reform, which says 285 companies have offered bonuses, pay increases or increased 401 (k) contributions because of the tax plan. The group says at least 3 million Americans have received tax bonuses, many about $1,000 or $2,000; the list only lists one company (IAT Insurance Group of North Carolina) as offering $3,000.
With about 126 million full-time workers in the United States, less than 2.5 percent have received these one-time bonus so far. Many of the companies offering bonuses are in the financial services industry.
