Tax Reform

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. LANCE. Mr. Speaker, as we continue to seek answers to the bombings in Boston and pray for the victims and their families, we are working on important issues here in Washington.

This past tax season, American taxpayers spent billions of hours and enormous amounts of money to complete their tax filings. Roughly nine out of 10 Americans relied on paid professionals or commercial software to prepare their tax returns, and small business owners found themselves spending more resources complying with the Tax Code rather than creating jobs. That's why I am committed to making our Tax Code simpler, fairer, and less expensive for America's working families and businesses.

Mr. Speaker, the time is now to act and to create a Tax Code that is easier to navigate and promotes growth to the benefit of individuals, small and large businesses alike, and the U.S. economy as a whole.

This is the year to reform our Tax Code to benefit all Americans in a bipartisan capacity.
