About Stop the Tax Attack
The U.S. tax code has grown both in size and complexity since it was last overhauled thirty years ago, burdening taxpayers and businesses who are losing valuable time and money in efforts to comply with its byzantine provisions. Furthermore, American businesses find themselves behind in the global marketplace as they contend with one of the highest tax rates among developed countries and a system that imposes taxes on all business income, no matter where it was earned. The result is companies fleeing the United States, stashing trillions offshore, and a lack of investment and growth that continues to plague the nation’s economy.
Our tax code shouldn’t work against us. Rather, it should encourage opportunity and economic growth for businesses while allowing individuals to keep more money in their pockets and secure their financial futures.
Moving forward, Republicans and Democrats in Congress must work together to enact comprehensive tax reform that lowers the corporate and individual rates, streamlines the tax base, and simplifies compliance. It’s time to Stop the Tax Attack.
