Description

The Treasury Department's tax reform proposals in 1985 should be opposed because they would 1) reduce incentives for new investment; 2) reduce venture capital for high-tech and other enterprises; 3) raise the tax burden on small businesses; 4) would create uncertainty for investors regarding future tax rules; 5) reduce economic growth; and 6) weaken the financial position of states and of private non-profit institutions.
