Expert: ‘Tax reform doesn’t need to be a bad romance between taxpayers and policymakers’


The Taxpayers Protection Alliance this Valentine’s Day is asking congressional lawmakers to show a little love for tax reform.

The Hill has the details:

The organization is running a campaign this week called “Love is Patient, Taxpayers Aren’t” that is aimed at ensuring comprehensive tax reform stays a priority for lawmakers and their staff, the group said.

As part of the campaign, TPA is sending eCards to all Congress members and their staff that feature Valentine’s Day-themed tax facts. For example, an eCard would say “American Businesses pay between $18-19 billion to comply with taxes. That’s enough to buy nearly 900 million boxes of chocolate,” TPA said …

“Tax reform doesn’t need to be a bad romance between taxpayers and policymakers, Republicans and Democrats,” TPA president David Williams said in a news release. “We know that a key issue for individual voters and businesses alike is comprehensive tax reform. Congress should remain committed to getting it done in 2016.”

We don’t know about you but we’d rather our nation consume more chocolate than waste billions of dollars complying with an outdated 75,000-page tax code. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots encourage lawmakers to create a tax code that is simpler, flatter and fairer!
