Tax Reform

Federal tax policies must encourage, incentivize, and reward risk and achievement—not discourage and penalize them. Lower taxes put more money in consumers’ pockets. That creates demand for goods and services and encourages businesses to create jobs.

We need a tax code that is simpler, fairer, and more efficient. Taxes must be lower across-the-board and special interest loopholes that benefit Wall Street but not Main Street must be closed. And, the IRS must be more accountable to taxpayers instead of targeting groups based on their political ideology.
