Trump Says He Will End Taxing Tips for Service Workers

Many Americans work or have worked in the service industry. Bars, restaurants, entertainment, hotels, those who perform these types of service jobs rely heavily on tips as part of their income.

Which get taxed. But what if that ended?

Donald Trump says he'll make it happen.

Speaking at a massive rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, Trump decided to speak directly to the city's service workers who really make it all work.

On getting rid of taxing tips, Trump said, “We’re going to do that right away first thing in office because it’s been a point of contention for years and you do a great job of service — you take care of people."

This would not only be helpful to those in the service industry - it's smart politics.

As Bloomberg noted, "Trump’s latest tax-cut pledge signaled a bid to appeal to Nevada’s booming service industry dominated by young workers and people of color, two voter groups he’s courting as he heads toward the Republican National Convention in mid-July."

Biden won Nevada in 2020, but his sinking support among Black and Hispanic voters could help Trump gain footing.

Trump told the crowd, “For those hotel workers and people that get tips, you’re going to be very happy. Because when I get to office, we are going to not charge taxes on people making tips.”

A Bloomberg survey taken in May showed Biden and Trump tied in Nevada at 47 percent.

“Those people who have jobs in restaurants, whatever the job may be, a tipping job, we aren’t going after for taxes anymore,” Trump vowed.

According to recent polling, Trump could very well win Nevada taking it back from Joe Biden.

With a little under five months until the election anything could still happen. But in Nevada and elsewhere, Donald Trump seems to be making many right moves.

Tip money have already been taxed several times and I feel not taxing tips is a great idea.
