Senator David Perdue: It Is Time For A Fairer & Simpler Tax Code

ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), an advocate for a new, streamlined tax structure that is fairer for all Americans, released the following statement in advance of the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Tax Day:

"Many Americans dread Tax Day because it reminds us how much money Washington takes from our hard-earned paychecks. Every year, Georgians are forced to deal with the government’s archaic tax code that is unfair and overly complex. It is time to finally overhaul our tax code by lowering overall tax rates for both individuals and corporations. We also need to close the innumerable special interest loopholes and deductions, so we can stop the federal government from picking winners and losers. With lower rates and the elimination of our corporate repatriation tax, we could finally unleash the full power of the American free enterprise system. Ultimately, we should put in place the FairTax to level the playing field for all Americans, protect hardworking Georgians, and phase out the IRS.”

In his first days in office, Senator Perdue introduced legislation to overhaul and simplify the American tax system by implementing the FairTax to replace our complicated and costly tax system and eventually abolish the IRS.
