Tax cuts in 2017 reduced taxes for high-income earners; top corporate taxes dropped from 35% to 21%. These corporate tax cuts benefit wealthy shareholders and high-paid executives. Individual income taxes for the highest income earners were also cut. The law decreased the individual income tax rate for certain business types. The tax cuts also doubled the estate tax exemption, which allowed affluent households to pass on more wealth tax-free.
