Simplifying the Tax Code

May 11, 2020

Simplifying the tax code is one of the most important items that Martin Weber will be tackling in Congress this fall. As a small business person and an tax paying citizen, Martin thinks that our tax codes are difficult to understand and onerous. The only way to deal with the mess that is the U.S. tax code is radical simplification.

According to PolitiFact, “If you download the Internal Revenue Code from the United States Code, also known as Title 26 in the document, the file is 6,550 pages long. Not all of that is the text of the code itself, but that is still rather lengthy. Blunt definitely got it right that the code is long, but has it doubled since 1985?” Marty believes that our tax code should be written on a single page and it would be better if it could be communicated on the back of an envelope.

When Martin Weber becomes elected to New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District in 2020 he pledges to work to reduce the burden that our tax places on all of our citizens and businesses.
