Ann supports a true overhaul of the current tax code. Seventy thousand-plus pages of tax policy put businesses and individuals at an unfair advantage. Businesses are forced to spend countless time and money focusing on what they must do to comply rather than on bettering their craft. Ann supports simplifying the code to make policies more straightforward and to eliminate tax loopholes. These measures will help provide businesses with real, long-term certainty in the tax structure that will promote innovation and job creation.
Ann understands that the government cannot tax its way out of debt. She proudly signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge which opposes increases in income tax. Ann also supports lowering taxes -- both individual and corporate -- to provide a more friendly business and living environment. That environment will in turn encourage companies to start or relocate here and ultimately prevent jobs from being shipped overseas.
