Sixty percent of U.S. adults underestimate how much individuals will save this year as a result of last year’s tax cut legislation. A Job Creators Network/ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 23 percent overestimated the tax cut and 16 percent provided a good estimate.
The legislation will save an average family of four approximately $1,200 in taxes during 2018. However, 23 percent of adults believe the savings will amount to $100 or less. Another 21 percent believe the savings will be between $100 and $500.
A majority of Democrats (58 percent) believe that a family of four will save $500 or less. So do 41 percent of independents and 33 percent of Republicans.
