It’s been more than 30 years since Washington enacted comprehensive tax reform. Now it’s on the agenda again.
Back in 1986 – with President Reagan, a Democratic-majority House, and a Republican-majority Senate – tax reform took the better part of two years and nearly fell apart along the way.
So we know it won’t be fast or easy, but it must start somewhere – and in this edition of The Washington DC 100, we have lawmakers from Congress’ tax-writing committees, as well as top policy minds who were a part of the 1986 effort, weighing in on the path forward.
