Today’s Taxpayer News!

NTUF today released a study on cigarette taxes, exploring the broader fiscal effects of an excise on tobacco. 

NTU and 21 other organizations have backed a measure that would prevent the IRS from playing a role in the implementation of Obamacare. The legislation, introduced by Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), is expected to be considered by the House on Friday.

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) is supporting a temporary stop-gap measure to prevent the government from shutting down due to a lack of funding at the end of the fiscal year. Many conservative groups (including NTU) have urged Boehner to oppose measures that offer funding for Obamacare.
