Scrap the Tax Code

BY Matt Kibbe

April 15, national lawbreaker day, is around the corner. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls, and disasters waiting to happen. Special interests have long fed at the tax code trough, getting clever exclusions and deductions added to the code while you and I break pencils worrying about if those late-night copies constitute a business expense or whether mileage can be deducted from our taxes. Who knows? Unless you like pouring over indecipherable tax forms, instruction booklets, and the attendant guide books published by the tax consulting industry, you will probably never know for sure if you've paid the right amount this year. You might just be a felon.

Supply-Siders Plan a Panel to Rival Mack's

BY Meghan Clyne

WASHINGTON - Disappointed by recommendations from President Bush's advisory panel on tax reform, a group of free-market economists will try their hand at overhauling America's tax structure and are set to form their own unofficial advisory panel this week, prospective members told The New York Sun. The group's goal will be to present an alternative set of tax-reform proposals for the president's consideration before the State of the Union address in January, when he is next expected to deal seriously with the issue of restructuring the nation's tax system.
