President Trump laid out the details of his tax-reform plan in a speech at the state fairgrounds Wednesday. 

Trump's proposal cuts corporate taxes by nearly one half, slashes taxes on small business to 25%, and abolishes the inheritance tax. In addition, the President's plan would reduce the current seven tax brackets to three: 12%, 25% and 35%, although the the plan doesn't specify where the boundaries would be for each bracket. 

Also included in the plan is a doubling of the standard exemption for married couples to the first $24,000 earned versus the current $12,000.
