Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., announced Wednesday that the committee’s bipartisan tax working groups will be accepting public input until April 15 on ways to fix the nation’s tax code.

Members of the public and stakeholders can email the Committee’s five bipartisan tax working groups, which are currently analyzing existing tax law and examining policy trade-offs and available reform options within each group’s designated area. 

“By opening up our bipartisan working groups to public input, we hope to gain a greater understanding of how tax policy affects individuals, businesses, and civic groups across our nation,” Hatch and Wyden said in a joint statement. “In doing so, we will also equip our working groups with valuable input, and we hope these suggestions will help guide the groups through the arduous task of putting forth substantive ideas to reform the tax code in each of their areas.”

Submissions should be sent to the bipartisan groups by April 15 as a pdf attachment, with the attachment being saved using the name of the organization/individual submitting the recommendations.

The groups and their email addresses are:

Individual Income Tax – [email protected]

Business Income Tax – [email protected]

Savings & Investment – [email protected]

International Tax – [email protected]

Community Development & Infrastructure – [email protected]

Each of the five bipartisan working groups is currently working to produce findings on current tax policy and legislative recommendations within its area, with the goal of having recommendations from each of the five working groups completed by the end of May. 

Submissions from stakeholders will be reviewed by the working groups and ideas can be incorporated into the each working group’s final recommendations, Hatch and Wyden said.

The five working group recommendations will be delivered to Hatch and Wyden, and will be considered in developing bipartisan tax reform legislation.
