Shadow Raider brought this to our attention in a comment he made on the Ways and Means Committee Highlighting International Apsects of Tax Reform thread today.
Shadow Raider writes:
“The tax reform working groups of the Ways and Means Committee are discussing tax reform at full speed now, with hearings almost every day (nothing on international aspects yet, other than a hearing about trade with India). The committee announced that it is accepting formal comments from the public until April 15, and that those comments will be included in the final report by the Joint Committee on Taxation on May 6. The committee is even posting the comments on its website as they are sent (the only comment sent to the international group so far is about corporations). If many of us send comments about citizenship-based taxation, FATCA, FBAR etc., the subject should catch their attention.
Any person(s) and/or organization(s) wishing to submit comments can email email@example.com.
In the subject line of the email, please indicate “Comments: (name of) Tax Reform Working Group” (in our case, International Tax Reform Working Group).
Attach your submission as a Word document.
In addition to the Word document attachment, please include in the body of the email a contact name, physical address, phone number and email address.“
Thanks to Mark Twain for pointing out this should be prominently featured as a new thread of its own.
