Tax Reform

The tax code was last reformed in 1986 and is currently around 4 million words long. The degree of difficulty to comply with this outdated system is unnecessary and unfair. With far too many hard-working individuals living paycheck to paycheck, tax reform is needed to lower rates for everyone and allow you to keep more of your hard-earned income.

We have a tremendous opportunity to unleash our economy and spur economic growth by making our tax code simpler, fairer and flatter for everyone through comprehensive tax reform. 

While over-taxation is one piece of the problem, the flaws in the tax code go far beyond just excessive rates. We must also recognize the outrageous complexity of our Internal Revenue Service code and work to fix it. The uncertainty that stems from this convoluted system prevents businesses from growing and buries individuals in a mountain of paperwork. I will continue to work to cut through the complexity and compliance burdens to make filing taxes for Americans simple enough to fit on a postcard.

I believe the federal government already takes too many of our hard-earned tax dollars, and I refuse to support any proposal that gives our inefficient government more of what is rightly yours. I am proud to say that I have never voted for a tax increase and I will not support one now. As your Congressman, I will continue to work with my colleagues on tax reform that lowers the rates for all individuals and makes the tax code simpler, flatter, and fairer for everyone.
