There are over 73,000 pages
in our current tax code. Studies have been done where several accountants have
tried to find the tax owed for one business. All the accountants came up with
different answers. The tax code is almost impossible for anybody to understand.
2. High Business Taxes Make Us Noncompetitive
We have one of the highest business taxes of any place in the world. This of course
makes it hard for us to compete with other nations and drives businesses out of
our country. This also contributes to the unemployment in America.
3. Excessive Regulations
American businesses cannot
compete with industries in other countries because of excessive regulations.
4. It Takes a Lot of Money to Pay Tax Money
It costs a huge amount of
money to try and figure out how much taxes you owe. This also puts American
businesses and entrepreneurs to a disadvantage.
5. Innovation and Wages Remain Lackluster
Because of the high tax
rate businesses cannot pay their workers as much as they deserve or upgrade
equipment and computers.
In conclusion, President Trump
and Congress should simplify the tax code and lower the tax rates immediately.
