Reforming the Tax Code a Luetkemeyer Priority

June 23, 2017

I think we can all agree that under our current tax code, there are too many Americans and small businesses who are not getting a fair shake.

We believe that, instead of our current system, Americans need a tax system that rewards hard-work, entrepreneurship, investment, and innovation. We believe that tax reform should be focused on growth – a growth in American jobs, paychecks, and our nation’s economy.

In order to do so, we must achieve three priorities: ending special interest tax breaks and reducing taxes for all Americans so you can keep more of your hard-earned money and use it on what is important to you and our family; lowering tax rates for American job creators of all sizes so they can invest more in expanding their businesses, hiring new workers, and growing paychecks; and making America a 21st century magnet for job creation and business investment with solutions that dramatically enhance the competitiveness of our tax code.

House Republicans are working on bold solutions. Right now, the current tax code runs approximately 76,000 pages. Our tax reform plan simplifies the code so that the majority of Americans will be able to file their taxes on a form the size of a postcard – that is no joke.

At the end of the day, we need a tax code that works for the 21st century. Reforming the tax code means that families, individuals, and small businesses will have more time to spend on growing the economy rather than tackling the burdensome and complicated tax code. That will help make the United States the number one place in the world to hire and invest.
