Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4019, Permanent Marriage Penalty Relief Act Of 2002 June 13, 2002
Gerald Weller, R-IL
"I have here before us Jose and Magdalena Castillo and their children Eduardo and Carolina. Jose and Magdalena are a working couple from Joliet, Illinois. Jose has an income of about $57,000. Magdalena has an income of $25,000. Because they are married, they file jointly. Their marriage tax penalty was $1,125 before the Bush tax cut was signed into law a year ago, and if we fail to make permanent marriage tax relief once again, the Castillo family will suffer the marriage tax penalty, and in their case, that is $1,125."
