South Carolina realtors and colleges among those awaiting impact of tax overhaul effort

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott has become one of the lead salesmen on the effort, extolling the virtues of a tax overhaul in broad terms publicly while working on the nuts and bolts behind closed doors on the Senate finance committee.

“Often when you hear us talk about tax reform, it sounds like a lot of numbers,” the North Charleston Republican said on the Senate floor Thursday. “I’m not sure how excited or enamored people get with numbers, but I’m the kind of guy who believes tax reform is not about numbers. Tax reform is about everyday Americans being able to keep more of their hard-earned money.”
