Andrew Castleby, 36, Poet, Milwaukee, WI, Annual Income – $9,736 (Estimated Tax Savings $10)
“I’ve already bought a three pack of wool-blend socks.”

Francine Battes, 23, Graduate Student, Tuscaloosa, AL, Annual Income – $17,500 (Estimated Tax Savings $50)
“Well, I’m really glad my tuition waiver won’t be taxed as income. I was thinking I’d use the extra money for a textbook, but, as it turns out, I can only get ⅓ of a used textbook. I’m not complaining, though. Please don’t tell them I complained.”

Sander Smith, 24, Customer Service Rep, Wichita, KS, Annual Income – $28,349 (Estimated Tax Savings $180)
“I wasn’t thinking about going to Coachella this year, but now I probably might.”

J.L. (full name withheld at request of respondent), School Teacher, 31, Fargo, ND, Annual income – $36,400 (Estimated Tax Savings $360)
“Well, I get an extra thirty dollars a month. But I can’t write off the money I spend on supplies for my classroom. Last year I spent about $500. This year, I’ll spend at least that. I’m in the hole $140, but that’s only a loss of $11.66 a month, so I figure I’ll be okay. At least until a few years from now when my taxes go up.”

Holly Washington, 43, Mortgage Consultant, Fresno, CA, Annual Income – $48,373 (Estimated Tax Savings $570)
“I was going to pay down my credit card debt faster, but I just found out I need a new water heater.”

Lamar Hand, 25, Accountant, Mesquite, TX, Annual Income – $72,000 (Estimated Tax Saving $870)
“Well, I’ll save more than that. I won’t go into the specifics, but I will save more than that. Most of my savings will go to student loan payments.”

Dana Tavares, 51, Creative Director, Phoenix, AZ, Annual Income – $86,258 (Estimated Tax Savings $1,310)
“I don’t want to come off like I’m not thankful. It’s an extra $100 a month, and I’ll take it I guess. But this still seems like a really bad idea to me. I mean we’re borrowing $1,500,000,000,000 or more and thinking business owners are going to raise wages that have been stagnant for 40 years because their taxes are lower, and it seems like wishful thinking to me. We all know they’re going to pocket it. Anyway, the answer to your question is I’ll build up cash reserves and stock my basement for the coming class uprising and all the civil chaos that will come along with it.”

Dori and Richard Henderson, 43 and 47, Scientists, Saint Paul, MN, Annual Household Income – $198,362 (Estimated Tax Savings $2,260)
“Well, not much. Our daughter is a high-school sophomore and will head off to college soon. We figure her all-in costs for a four-year degree to be about $300,000. Set against that, what’s 2200 bucks a year?”

Andy Andrews, 29, Medical Device Sales Rep, Salt Lake City, UT, Annual Income – “about $300k, bro” (Estimated Tax Saving $6,560)
“Not quite enough for a Bitcoin, am I right? No, seriously, I’ll invest some. I play a lot of golf, so I’ll probably fresh up the sticks. Some dudes I know were talking about St. Bart’s. I’ve heard it’s sick. Maybe in March. Also, I might redo the flooring in my entryway.”

Bill and Jennifer Eddingson, 47 and 51, small business owners, Knoxville, TN, Annual Household Income $600,000 (Estimated Tax Savings $21,240)
Oh, we’re definitely going to give it all to our employees. That will happen for sure.

Fitzgerald DeBagg, 34, Analyst, New York, NY, Annual Income – $3,273,419 (Estimated Tax Savings $69,660)
Honestly? I might not notice it. I make about $275,000 a month. In a way, it’s like I now make about $280,000 a month. What changes for me? Not much. My monthly nut is insane. I won’t waste it though. Some buddies and I have a group we use to provide early-stage capital to start-ups. I might up my allocation there. Look, I know folks are pretty pissed about how this all went down — guys like me getting the most and all. I don’t blame them. I don’t, but hey, this is America. You know what I’m saying? You gotta play to win.
