There are numerous issues to consider when choosing who to vote for in 2016, but taxes are almost certainly among the most important. Many of the candidates have released comprehensive tax plans outlining everything from proposed tax brackets to how long the tax forms should be. Others, however, have simply issued general guidelines, such as "the tax code is far too complex," or "we'll lower taxes on middle-class Americans."

Taxes are an issue that affect Americans in different ways, depending on their income and family size. With that in mind, the slideshow below shares what we know so far about the 2016 Presidential Candidates' tax plans.

Note: There are currently a total of 17 candidates (14 republicans and 3 democrats). For the purposes of this slideshow, I only considered candidates with 3% nationwide support or higher as of November 4, 2015, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
