April 15 is the final day to file and pay your 2018 taxes.

She's pitched an aggressive ultra-millionaire tax that she said would be used to fund universal childcare, student loan debt relief and down payments on a Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, most US workers have seen little to no benefit from the GOP's $1.5 trillion Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

This year's Tax Freedom Day was to fall on April 16 - 105 days into the year.

The IRS does give tax payer's three different options if for any reason they can't pay the full amount today.

In his remarks the president said the economy was doing well and that the recent tax cuts were "working very, very well".

The visit to Minnesota - a potential swing state in the 2020 election - is part of a week of events created to promote the tax law's effects on the economy as he turns to his re-election campaign. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made the withholding more accurate, meaning the government owed fewer Americans and thus some were surprised to see their tax refunds drop from previous year.

But an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll this month showed that just 17% of Americans believe their taxes have been cut.

The Walzes were also subject to a phenomenon experienced by many Americans: Even though their total federal tax burden went down, they found themselves owing at the end of the year more than prior years.

"That tax bill was a major missed opportunity", she said.

Filing jointly, Klobuchar and her husband, attorney and professor John Bessler, found themselves in a lower tax bracket in 2018, but ultimately paid more in total taxes, as their combined income increased. It doubled the standard deduction and enhanced the child tax credit.

Along with discussions on taxes, trade and the economy, Trump also expressed his shock and sadness for the massive fire that was devastating the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - calling the blaze something "that is beyond country, it's beyond everything".
