Dear Editor, There's a lot of talk about rewriting the tax code in Washington. Lawmakers like Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mon.), and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., are traveling across the country to gain support for tax reform that would lower corporate and individual tax rates and clean out the bloated tax code.

Dear Editor, Thereís a lot of talk about rewriting the tax code in Washington. Lawmakers like Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mon.), and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., are traveling across the country to gain support for tax reform that would lower corporate and individual tax rates and clean out the bloated tax code.

Thatís long overdue. Americaís tax system is unfair and confusing. Businesses like mine are subjected to effective tax rates higher than 30 percent, while some multinational companies have billions overseas that go untaxed.

It is time for businesses to let lawmakers know that we wonít stand to be disadvantaged by the tax code any longer. Thatís why my business joined Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates - to band together to support Baucus and Camp in their fight for comprehensive tax reform. I hope other businesses speak out, too. Then maybe tax reform will actually happen.

Sincerely,

Rick Buehrer
