August 29, 2012 - U.S. Senator Mark Begich held a roundtable discussion with visiting Senator Ron Wyden and local business leaders to discuss the Wyden-Coats-Begich Bipartisan Tax Fairness and Simplification Act. Begich and Wyden discussed their legislation and previewed the tax reform debate coming in Congress.
The Bi-Partisan Tax Fairness and Simplification Act is designed to simplify the tax system, reduce rates for individuals and families, and provide tax relief to the middle class. It also creates incentives for businesses to grow and invest in the United States. The Wyden-Coats-Begich bill updates President Reagan's tax reform law of 25 years ago by streamlining the tangled web of nearly 10,000 exemptions, deductions, credits and other preferences that clutter the U.S. tax code, and creating a simpler and fairer system for American workers and businesses.
