The Kogod Tax Center's Letter Submission to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance - April 2015

In response to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance request for public comments on how to make the U.S. tax code simpler, fairer and more efficient, American University's Kogod School of Business Tax Center announced it is undertaking ground-breaking tax policy research to consider how the tax code can be overhauled to reflect the explosive growth of the "Uber economy" and the people who are driving.

The letter illustrates some of the problems Emerging Entrepreneurs are facing in the current filing season and urges the Senate Finance Committee to investigate these issues in connection with tax reform.
