Mr. President with the high cost of professional grooming today only a small percentage of the population can afford to visit a salon or barber shop. As a result the vast majority of American's have never experienced as you have what personal enhancement can do to build confidence and improve their appearance both physically and emotionally.
To make this healthy personal care service affordable for every citizen along with your tax reform program how about including a tax deduction for professional grooming. A $100 per year tax deduction for everyone would go along way to cover the basic cost. A regular visit to a salon or barber stylist provides much more then a haircut or hair styling. As the saying goes, when you look good, you feel good about yourself. This is the essence of what the professional beauty industry provides.
Jump Start the Economy / Stimulate the Beauty Industry
's Face Value America
A tax deduction for personal care would not only help everyone afford to look their best but would also jump-start the economy, stimulate the beauty industry and improve
's face value. And by the way, the beauty profession is an ideal career choice for all
those with an artist’s eye and caring personality. However,
the cost to enroll in a beauty college today is out of reach to so many. A tax
credit program for cosmetology trade schools
would help so many young people enter this financially rewarding career. America
I'm sure many of you reading this thought provoking letter to President Trump will get a “few giggles” from it. However people in the entertainment industry have been legally deducting personal care services for years. And many corporations and businesses today require their employee's to look well groomed at their own expense and a visit to a hair stylist is a big part of that expense. Mr. President, I hope you will consider this personal care tax deduction suggestion as part of your over-all tax reform program .
