No Love Tax

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) delivered a heartfelt Valentine’s Day message to Capitol Hill- No Love Tax.

Liz Tobias, Director of Tax and Budget Policy, made the following statement:

“Uncle Sam must believe there is no such thing as free love. But reducing the burden of the marriage penalty would deliver tax relief at the altar.

“Currently, two working individuals filing as a married couple will pay more than when they filed as single people, often as much as $1,400 more.

“The marriage penalty is yet another unfair component of our tax code. This is why we need to ‘Scrap the Code’ and replace it with a tax system that is simple, low, fair, and honest.”
