Congressman MacArthur Introduces Legislation Requiring the IRS to Make an Online Tax Calculator Available
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom MacArthur introduced the Transparency for Taxpayers Act. This bill directs the IRS to make an online tool available to individual filers by April 1, 2018 that will enable people to see the impact of the new tax law at the same time that they file their taxes under the current code.
“Over the next year, Americans will seek to understand how the new tax law will affect their bottom line,” said Congressman Tom MacArthur. “The new law will absolutely provide Americans with real tax relief, but unfortunately some people in politics and the media have resorted to fear-mongering and spreading misinformation about it. The American people deserve better and they deserve the truth. This bill is a common sense solution that will allow taxpayers to see the real and truthful impact of the new tax law.”
The Transparency for Taxpayers Act is cosponsored by Representatives Rodney Davis (R-IL), Bob Gibbs (R-OH), Bill Johnson (R-OH), John Faso (R-NY), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Tom Garrett (R-VA), John Rutherford (R-FL), Don Bacon (R-NE), Warren Davidson (R-OH), Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Alex Mooney (R-WV).
