The government may be shut down but the Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates is looking past the current fiscal debacle. The coalition sent a letter Tuesday to House Ways and Means Committee and Senate Finance Committee members and staff urging action on full-scale comprehensive tax reform. “There is no question; the federal tax code is broken. Businesses of all kinds and sizes agree, what’s needed is revenue-neutral tax reform that simplifies the code by lowering individual and corporate rates and limiting or eliminating certain tax preferences,” the coalition writes in the letter.
