Early filers have been taking to social media to express their ire at finding that their refunds were a fraction of what they anticipated or — worse yet — that they would owe an unexpected bill to the IRS. https://t.co/AHKF2yY9qq— MSNBC (@MSNBC) February 9, 2019
Want actual evidence that the #GOP tax scam raised taxes on millions of middle class Americans? Read below.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) February 9, 2019
Or look at your tax refund (if you even get one). Many of you will see that @realDonaldTrump & Republicans lied to you.#SaturdayMorning Thoughts https://t.co/jKFP5Rjv4N
Trump supporters and detractors alike directed their anger at the President, for directly impoverishing them, on Twitter.
@realDonaldTrump Thanks to your “middle class tax reforms” I have to tap into my retirement fund to pay(for the first time ever)my income taxes this year. I voted for you and will make it my mission to make sure you don’t have a second term. What a disappointment.I’m disgusted.— p0ursp0rt (@p0ursp0rt) February 6, 2019
Completed my taxes. I file the same every year, claiming nothing. Getting back a fraction of 2017 return. Apparently I mis-read everything. Should have been called "Tax Refund Cuts" cause my returns suck!! Thanks @realDonaldTrump #taxrefund #TaxReturns— Andrew Loughlin (@awloughlin) February 4, 2019
I have to pay $2000 MORE in taxes this year! What happened?? I voted for you and thought you were fixing this, not making it worse!? I thought I would get money back this year!?— Iamnewatthis (@sandynewtothis) February 1, 2019
I got less than half back on my tax return than i did last year. Good job. #ThanksTrump— Chris O (@MyCat_HatesYou) February 9, 2019
I voted for you the first time but after you screwed me on my get tax break I won’t vote for you again especially after I started on my 2018 return it’s a joke the taxes you are keeping from a working person good luck in 2020— Shelby Kuh (@ShelbyKuh) February 2, 2019
Legit getting $1000 LESS in my #taxreturn from last year. Thanks so much for fighting for the middle class like you did, @realDonaldTrump. Glad to know my money goes to big companies rather than helping pay my student loans and medical expenses. They need it more than me, right?— Grace Slick (@GraceStyle) February 5, 2019
@realDonaldTrump I just got back from my tax accountant. All I can say is you phucked us bad. On the same income as 2017 I went from getting a ~$6,000 refund for both state and federal to owing ~$2,000 total. I will not vote for you again. Your tax changes SUCK!— Jeff Dearborn (@JeffDearborn) February 1, 2019
@realDonaldTrump you are gonna give me my tax refunds or we will have a problem and you don’t want these problems don’t play with my money you will regret it— glizzygetitbangin™ (@chyblizzy) January 5, 2019
People reported losing thousands in vital income thanks to Trump.
I am the sole provider for my family. My tax return is $7k less than what’s it’s been the last 6 years. I needed that for my kids preschool! But The fortune 300 company I work for saved 5 billion in taxes this year. Fuck you @realDonaldTrump ! #taxrefund #TaxReturns— Meezie (@1stborntwin) February 5, 2019
@realDonaldTrump , thanks for removing the per member household deduction from your tax code ya twat. Last tax return we got $10 back, now we owe $2,100!!!!!!! But you’re for the middle class, right? ?? #Congress #TaxScam— Godless Mama ?? (@JANDREWS2013) February 4, 2019
How many people are realizing that your tax returns are lower this year. Congratulations @realDonaldTrump supporters this is what you get, his tax bill that went to the rich, well we are paying for it now. #DumbFucks #TaxRefund #TaxScam #FBR #Resist #TrumpsCashingIn— Poppi Ryan (@PoppiRyan) February 5, 2019
Having seen some tweets from other middle-class folks like myself about their 2018 tax returns has me concerned I may actually end up owing the IRS MORE money, or not getting the refund I have always enjoyed! I didn’t vote for Trump, but those who did now regret it! #TaxScam— What'dHeDoNow?! (@Kaobarney) February 6, 2019
Of course not everyone was overflowing with sympathy for those who supported Trump and are now regretting it.

Oh really? If only they were warned. What part of tax cuts for the wealthy did they not understand? Time to turn off the fox tv and start critical thinking.— sjg567 is still resisting (@sjgebauer) February 9, 2019
My accountant last year, ran what my return would look like this year... I knew a year ago that this tax plan was for shit. Always had to laugh when people would talk about how this asshat is so great for their bank accounts. I now want to hear from those same people now.— Michael Harrison (@HarrisonMJ1967) February 9, 2019
