Hillary Clinton Tax Plan Whatever You Want It To Be

Hillary Clinton Tax Plan Whatever You Want It To Be
Last week, I noted that Ted Cruz has a long way to go to come up with something resembling a usable tax plan. Compared to Hillary Clinton’s tax plan, though, his is a well-established masterpiece. From what I could find, Hillary Clinton’s presidential tax plan boils down to a couple of vague platitudes about helping the ...

Fighting to Make LIFO Repeal First Out

Fighting to Make LIFO Repeal First Out
I certainly hope Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp had some idea what he was getting into when he wrote a plan to reform our tax system.

Unfriending The Zuckerberg Tax

Unfriending The Zuckerberg Tax
The New York Times ran an editorial yesterday called The Zuckerberg Tax. Mr. Miller, the author in charge of the piece, does have some valid points and some legitimate concerns about the super wealthy getting around paying taxes. It’s certainly not the same old Buffet Rule that’s been making it rounds on the internet, so ...
