The Time for Tax Reform is Now
The Taxpayer Advocate Service has established a vehicle to receive taxpayers’ suggestions about tax reform.
We ask that you approach this with the frame of mind that everything – even the tax breaks that benefit you or your businesses personally – should be on the table. What would you be willing to give up if you knew that others are giving up their breaks and the end result would be a much simpler system? What particular provisions of the existing tax system are especially burdensome or seem particularly unfair? So, let us know.
We track these suggestions and post them periodically, thereby helping to further the cause of tax reform and tax simplification. These posted suggestions represent a range of comments that illustrate the diversity of thought and the seriousness with which taxpayers responded. We thank everyone who has left comments, and encourage others to join this dialogue.
The Taxpayer Advocate Service will not respond directly to your suggestions.
Your suggestions are compiled and reviewed by the National Taxpayer Advocate. You will not receive an individual response. If you're experiencing a tax problem with the IRS and haven't been able to resolve it yourself, please contact TAS. If you have questions about your taxes, please contact the IRS at (800) 829-1040.
