The first month of 2018 is almost halfway through and with the passage of the federal tax reform businesses are changing in Mississippi.
“Everybody is going to see more money in their paycheck,” said Congressman Steven Palazzo.
Palazzo said that several Mississippi businesses have been able to expand and that the employees will begin to reap the benefits in 2018.
“Half shell announced immediately that they are going to expand their restaurants and with each restaurant they expand, they create 100 jobs in Mississippi,” Palazzo said.
He added that Bancorp South, which is across Mississippi has also announced that they will be having a higher pay increases than they expected due to the tax reform.
“I believe that every company is going to see a positive impact from the tax bill that we passed which means that hard working Mississippians are going to get that long needed pay raise that we didn’t see under Obama’s administration and under his rule.” Palazzo said.
