I lost the personal exemption and my deductions will go down because of the salt limitations yet I will still itemize so I havenít put it to paper but I think I will pay a little more

Well, if you haven't put it to paper, why do you think you will pay more? Have you even looked at the tax rates?

The allowable deduction for SALT has a max of $10K. There are still other allowable deductions. Charitable contributions are allowed up to 50% of your income (some limited to 30%). Medical deductions are allowed (for amounts that exceed 7.5% of your income. There are more. The standard deduction (married) was raised to $24K, so would need $14K+ of other deductions to exceed the standard.

Depending on what you consider "High", how does Property Tax relate to a persons income ?. Not looking to bash, just wondering ?. Thank you all for your input.

They're not separate. It includes income taxes, sales taxes, real estate taxes, and property taxes. Those are the line items under the State and Local Taxes section of schedule A that are subject to a cap of $10,000.

schedule A

It probably has less impact on high income since they're involved in more business and investment activities. You can write off the real estate tax under Schedule A, Schedule C, or Schedule E depending on why you hold the property. Schedules C and E don't have the deduction limit.

I just did the math and I will pay slightly more under the new plan because of the two items I mentioned, losing the personal exemption and SALT lowering my deductions

That's not what the Tax Policy Center concluded

High-Income Households Would Benefit Most From Repeal of the SALT Deduction Cap

Not if you are a W-2 high earner.

Usually people who make a lot of $$ are in homes with higher property taxes.

Well, I don't mean to doubt your intelligence, but do you understand how marginal tax brackets work? ALL of the brackets are lower and you don't pay the rate that your highest dollar of income is on ALL of the $$. You know that, right?
