Setting the record straight on tax reform

Andrew Wilford - THE HILL - December 19, 2017

As tax reform legislation moves closer to a final vote, one would expect taxpayers to be looking forward to being allowed to keep more of their own money. Instead, polls are showing that Americans are actually more opposed to a bill that will cut their taxes than previous tax hikes.


Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will simplify the code

Demian Brady - December 18, 2017

While much attention is paid to the burdens of paying taxes, often overlooked is the burden of filing taxes. In total, taxpayers spend nearly 7 billion hours just to comply with the current tax code, an amount of time worth $263 billion. Because making sense of forms and tax regulations is borderline impossible for most, nearly 90% of taxpayers use a paid service to complete their taxes.

Thankfully, relief is on the way.

Fiscal Hawks are endangering tax reform by letting Democrats rewrite history on deficits

Mattie Duppler Springer - November 30, 2017

Enacting tax reform is the most important thing Congress can do to grow the economy, yet new hesitations are being expressed by lawmakers who worry that the tax overhaul will increase the budget deficit. But why? The deficit is the difference between what the federal government spends and what it the government takes in. Put another way: It is the resulting measure of two meaningful metrics, both of which (conservatives typically argue) should be low.


OP-ED: Congress: Before You Jump Into Tax Reform, Pass a Budget and Show You Can Govern

Mattie Duppler -  September 27, 2017

This week, all eyes in Washington are focused on the Big Six and the release of their tax reform framework. But tax reform proponents cannot afford to let this highly-anticipated release distract Congress from first completing the essential task of passing a budget. The Big Six's outline should increase the resolve of congressional Republicans to pass a budget and unlock the reconciliation process, which is a critical part of the tax reform effort.  Continue...

The tax reform package passed by the House and Senate will provide relief to millions of individuals, families, and businesses. Let's take a moment to thank congress for delivering strong tax reform before the end of the year.
