Five Biggest Reasons to Hate the IRS Tax Code

President Donald Trump has proposed what he calls “the biggest tax cut since Ronald Reagan.” He also wants vast simplification so that Americans can fill out their taxes on a postcard return. Let’s hope that part of this reform package will be to defang the IRS, which treats Americans as if they are guilty until proven innocent and invades the basic privacy rights of citizens.

Key Vote YES on the Senate Amendment to H.Con.Res. 71, the Budget Resolution for FY 2018

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on the Senate Amendment to H.Con.Res. 71, the budget resolution for FY 2018. Although the Senate’s budget numbers are not ideal, the passage of the Senate amendment to H.Con.Res. 71 would avoid a conference committee and save several days on the legislative calendar, giving the House Ways and Means Committee a head start on fundamental tax reform.

The States Show Trump Tax Cut Will Work

BY Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore

One reason the two of us were so confident that Donald Trump's economic policies would be positive for workers, the economy and the stock market, is that we've seen first hand these policies work in the states. Many liberal economists have been insisting that Donald ‎Trump's promise of a 3 or 4 percent growth is a fantasy and that 2 percent growth is the best we can do.

The Left Has No Competing Tax Vision, and That's Too Bad

On March 30, 1981, the Times of London published a letter signed by 364 prominent economists that predicted disaster for England under Margaret Thatcher’s economic policies. Reality has a way of removing the clothes of the so-called experts in rather embarrassing fashion.

It's Crunch Time in the Senate on the Tax Reform Budget Resolution

Coming off a week-long recess and without any significant legislative victories this year, the pressure is on the Senate this week to pass the FY 2018 budget resolution, S.Con.Res. 25, which provides reconciliation instructions for fundamental tax reform. The House passed its own version of the FY 2018 budget, H.Con.Res. 71, on October 5 by a vote of 219 to 206.

State and Local Tax Deduction To End Under New GOP Tax Framework

Americans like their tax deductions, but mainly because the tax rate to begin with is too high. This same principle holds for the state and local tax (SALT) deduction currently part of the 74,000+ page federal tax code. This deduction seems like a good idea, but Americans would be much better off with this deduction eliminated, and instead given real tax breaks across the board. Fortunately, the GOP tax reform framework released at the beginning of the month does just this.
