September 8, 2009

FALLS CHURCH, VA — Nonprofit publisher Tax Analysts released a book today containing 32 essays offering recommendations on tax reform to the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. The compendium, written by top tax professionals, addresses a range of issues currently at the heart of the tax-code review.

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker is in charge of the tax-code review aimed at closing loopholes, streamlining the law and generating revenue. Volcker, who heads the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, was asked to take a look at the laws in an effort to rebalance the tax system. The review, given a deadline of Dec. 4, is being ordered to make recommendations on steps to simplify the code which has been built over the last 96 years.
