Tax Reform Option Papers

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) have launched a process for the committee to begin developing a proposal to reform America’s tax code.  Over the next several months, the committee will convene weekly to discuss a series of topics and collect feedback from members on a wide range of options for taking on tax reform.  Presented to members of the committee will be tax reform option papers outlining a whole host of ideas to change various aspects of the tax code.  These option papers will include ideas from across the spectrum and, as such, do not necessarily have the endorsement of either the Chairman or Ranking Member.
