To the editor:
U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins has repeatedly argued that our nation’s tax code is too complex and costly, burdens small businesses and makes all U.S. companies less competitive against their foreign counterparts. Rep. Jenkins advocates for comprehensive reform of the code.
I applaud her for taking this stand and couldn’t agree more with her call for reform.
That’s why I was so pleased last month when Congress’s tax-writing committee offered a roadmap to reform. If this plan passed, 95 percent of Americans would be able to get their taxes done using the IRS’s simplest form.
What a relief this would be for small business owners like my husband and me! Our representatives in Washington should take a good look at this plan and debate it. An open, honest debate about tax reform is long overdue and would provide small business owners with some hope that our tax code will soon be improved in a way that will lower our compliance burdens and allow us to invest more of our hard-earned money and time back into our companies and our employees.
