Senators Seek Input on Bipartisan Tax Reform
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Ranking Member Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) this week announced a bipartisan effort to begin soliciting ideas from interested members of the public and stakeholders on how best to overhaul the nation’s tax code and to make it simpler, fairer and more efficient. The goal of the effort is to provide additional input, data and information to the Committee’s bipartisan tax working groups.
“By opening up our bipartisan working groups to public input, we hope to gain a greater understanding of how tax policy affects individuals, businesses, and civic groups across our nation,” said Sen. Hatch and Wyden. “In doing so, we will also equip our working groups with valuable input, and we hope these suggestions will help guide the groups through the arduous task of putting forth substantive ideas to reform the tax code in each of their areas.”
Interested individuals can submit their comments to the several work groups. Instructions on where to send your comments can be obtained here. Submissions will be accepted through April 15.
