A necessary prerequisite for Tax Reform

Posted by taxguru on August 11, 2017

Ever since the amazing election of Donald Trump, there has been debate as to whether or not he and the GOP controlled Congress will be able to enact any substantial reform of our wild and wacky Tax Code in the near future.  We in the Tax Practitioner community would love to know the answer to this question so we will know what to advise our clients.  The uncertainty surrounding this issue is very frustrating for us all.

Basing predictions of what our rulers in DC will do on their blustery talk is insane and ludicrous. However, if we look at what actual advance preparations are being made by our rulers for such reforms, it doesn’t look promising. 

As these others have noted, it’s pretty much impossible to clean up the IRS Swamp when its crooks are allowed to continue running it  and nobody is punished for their flagrant crimes.  How can we have anything resembling a fair tax system when we can’t trust those in charge of it?

The IRS is STILL toying with conservative nonprofits. When will Trump jump in and drain this swamp?
