Taxes

The tax burden Americans face is too high. The average Georgian taxpayer spends 13 hours each year completing tax forms. Across the country, Americans spend $168 billion annually on tax compliance. One of my top priorities is to reform our tax system to make it simpler, fairer and more competitive. By crafting streamlined, balanced budgets that cut out waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government, we can also cut down on the tax burden required of every American and build a government that is more responsive to the needs of citizens. I will also advocate for corporate tax reform and individual tax relief that lowers rates and ensures that America is a competitive place to do business.
