The complexity of our Tax Code is abysmal and inexcusable. As of 2015, our federal tax code was 74,608 pages. Compare that volume to our U.S. Constitution which consists of 4,400 words and it is no wonder that Americans are frustrated and an entire industry exists to prepare our personal taxes.
As our politicians continue to hand out tax breaks for those individuals and corporations who truly do not need them, the middle class is left to shoulder the tax burden. All too often the wealthiest among us pay a lower tax rate than the neediest among us.
We must simplify our tax code, close the loopholes, and restore a fair, balanced and respected tax code for all our citizens.
America CAN be FAIR with reasonable and responsible tax laws for all.
