Not Giving Up on Simplification

In mid-November, IRS Commissioner Shulman spoke at the Harvard Kennedy School, mostly about simplifying the tax law.  I was struck by how much his words tied to the AICPA Tax Division's simplification policy statement.  I have an article on this in the January 2012 AICPA's CPA Advocate. The article is entitled - "Not Giving Up on Simplification."  And I hope we don't give up despite the challenges due to a federal tax system that grows in complexity every year.

What do you think?

I do believe we need to simplify the tax code. Even Albert Einstein was once quote saying the hardest thing to understand was the US Tax Code. Regards, Ken
