Sixty-eight percent of Americans say they paid the same amount or more in federal taxes for 2018 as they did the previous year, despite a "tremendous" tax break promised by President Donald Trump before he passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017, according to a new Hill-HarrisX survey released Thursday.

Taxes were filed April 15, and the poll, which surveyed 1,001 registered voters, was conducted April 12-13.

The poll found:

  • 36% of Americans said they paid the same amount in federal taxes last year than in 2017.
  • 32% said they paid more last year than in 2017.
  • 18% said they paid less last year than in 2017.
  • 46% of respondents earning $125,000 or more per year said they owed more in 2018.
  • 33% of respondents making between $50,000 and $75,000 said they owed more in 2018 as well.
  • 29% of respondents making between $100,000 and $125,000 paid less in federal taxes in 2018.

HarrisX CEO Dritan Nesho warned a number of respondents could have filed their own taxes.

"You might actually have a little bit of an effect where people tried to do their own taxes, rather than hire a professional," Nesho told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons. "They're not realizing a lot of the returns or a lot of the gains that they could be realizing."
