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.

Preventing an Asbestos Mess in Kansas

Better safe than sorry – sound advice every mother gives their child. Soon, the Kansas State Legislature will have a chance to follow this sage advice in the form of asbestos litigation reform legislation: House Bill HR 2868. Lucky for the people and businesses in the state, Kansas has not become a hotbed of questionable asbestos litigation. However, the Legislature cannot afford to be complacent about this matter because the current law in Kansas makes the state a ripe target for trial lawyers looking to exploit the system to their advantage.
