Reform To The Tax Code Is Overdue

Dear Editor,

Americans, who are working hard every day, should be able to spend or save their earned wages in the way They want. 

Reform to the tax code is overdue!  (1986 was the last time comprehensive tax reform was passed.  Thirty one years ago!)                          

Most Americans truly dread April and tax season. The IRS reports that it takes 13 hours to fill out the 1040 tax form and that there are 199 tax forms for individuals. The code needs to be fair, easy to understand and on a simple single page.  

President Trump’s tax plan to eliminate all deductions except for charitable contributions and home mortgage interest is a simple fix.

Telephone, write, email or twitter your Representatives/Senators. This definitely should be a bipartisan effort! Working together, this much needed tax reform fight can be won!
