    Tax Advocacy - Legislation and Policy 

    The AICPA advocates for good tax policy by: (1) educating the public on the principles of good tax policy through issuance of tax policy concept statements; (2) participating in hearings, meetings, and conferences to promote good tax policy, particularly simplification of the tax laws, and to provide recommendations on how to reduce the "tax gap;" and (3) issuing an annual compendium of legislative proposals focused on noncontroversial proposals to simplify or correct perceived technical problems with provisions in the Internal Revenue Code.

    Tax Policy Concept Statements
     
    Tax Policy Concept Statement No. 1—Guiding Principles of Good Tax Policy: A Framework for Evaluation of Tax Proposals

    This tax policy concept statement provides a framework to help answer the question: How should proposals to change existing tax rules be analyzed? This question is answered by providing and discussing ten principles that are commonly cited and used as indicators of "good tax policy."

    Tax Policy Concept Statement No. 2—Guiding Principles for Tax Simplification

    In this tax policy concept statement, the AICPA reaffirms its support of efforts to reduce complexity in existing federal and state tax laws, and to curtail incremental complexity in the future. The statement sets forth guiding principles to be used in the development of simpler tax legislation and regulations.

    Tax Policy Concept Statement No. 3—Guiding Principles for Tax Law Transparency

    This concept statement addresses the "good tax policy" principle of transparency—the basic notion that taxpayers should know (1) that a tax exists, and (2) how and when the tax is imposed on them and others. The statement recommends guiding principles to be used in the development of more transparent tax law.

    Tax Policy Concept Statement 4 —Guiding Principles for Tax Equity and Fairness

    This concept statement addresses the "good tax policy" principle of equity and fairness. The statement identifies and defines seven “dimensions” that should be considered when assessing tax equity and fairness. The statement recommends guiding principles to be used in the development of more equitable and fair tax laws.
