As you prepare your tax forms, you might be thinking of better ways. Here's an idea -- tell Congress what you think. Reps. Adrian Smith (R-NE) and John B. Larson (D-CT) encourage members of the public, organizations, researchers and others to submit comments, information, facts, and data relevant to review of the current tax code being conducted by the House Committee on Ways and Means.
Smith and Larson are leading the bipartisan Ways and Means Tax Reform Working Group on Financial Services.
“Public comments will ensure we have the best information possible as we continue to review the current tax code and work toward comprehensive reform,” Smith said. “I hope individuals and groups will take advantage of this opportunity to engage with the working groups, and participate in this open approach to tax reform.”
“Creating a clear avenue of communication between constituents, stakeholders and these working groups is a critical step in reforming our tax code,” Larson said. “The information collected from these submissions will be extremely helpful in our work to review current financial services tax law.”
Public comments will be accepted through April 15, and will be published on the Ways and Means Committee’s website and included in the final Joint Committee on Taxation report, which will be delivered to the Committee on Ways and Means.
The process for submitting comments:
· Any person(s) and/or organization(s) wishing to submit comments can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
· In the subject line of the email, indicate “Comments: (name of) Tax Reform Working Group” (note: be sure to specify the name of the working group in the subject line - e.g., Energy Tax Reform Working Group).
· Attach submission as a Word document. (Cc a copy to the Bulletin at email@example.com)
· In addition to the Word document attachment, include in the body of the email a contact name, physical address, phone number and email address.
· For questions, or if you encounter technical problems, call (202) 225-3625 or (202) 225-1721.
