"We are super excited about it. I can't think of two better people to help prosecute not only the trade plan for the president, but also the future tax plan which I know will be first order of priority for the Secretary of Treasury."

"If you keep 1,000 jobs for the Carrier corporation and you leave them in Indiana. that's an increase, or at least not a decrease in your tax base. So the idea here is to use the tax policy to create more middle class jobs and to create wage growth for the working class. And so the combination of those two things I think you'll see, with dynamic scoring, that we should have a revenue neutral, or excuse me, a deficit neutral, or possibly even a reduction in our deficit if we handle this properly."

"Companies should expect a tax break. The whole purpose of what we're doing here, we have the highest corporate tax rates in the industrialized world. And so what we've got to do is, we got to get those corporate tax rates down to a competitive position, so that if you're a CFO or a CEO of an American corporation and you're looking at the way you're going to allocate your capital, you're going to make the decision to allocated that capital into the United States. So I'm hoping that every CEO in America is getting that beacon signal from the new Trump administration, that we're open for business in the United States."

"Remember another big thing about our tax policy is that we're going to repatriate trillions of dollars off the shore of the United States, bring it back here to help our manufacturing base, and again, with an extreme focus on the middle class and the working class families."

As President-elect Donald Trump moves forward with his Cabinet selections for secretaries of treasury and commerce, his transition team says a future tax plan will be the 'first order of priority".
Arriving at Trump Tower Wednesday morning for meetings, transition team member Anthony Scaramucci said the administration planned to "use the tax policy to create more middle class jobs and to create wage growth for the working class".
He also called for lowering corporate taxes to encourage companies to stay in the United States.
Trump was accompanying his decision to line his Cabinet with financial industry insiders with an announcement that the air conditioning giant Carrier Corp. planned to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana instead of moving them to Mexico.
Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, the outgoing Indiana governor, planned an event with Carrier officials Thursday to announce the plan.
Details of the agreement were unclear. Trump spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas, relying on the skills he used in business.
Trump said Wednesday he's leaving his business empire to focus on being the nation's 45th president, declaring he can successfully avoid conflicts of interest between governing and profiting in the private sector.
