Washington (April 12) –
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants believes that current tax law is often incomprehensible and that compliance burdens for individual taxpayers are too heavy, both in terms of time required and out-of-pocket cost, Annette Nellen
, chair of the AICPA Individual Income Taxation Technical Resource Panel, will tell the House Ways and Means Committee at a hearing Wednesday.
Nellen will describe areas of the tax code that need to be simplified in order to relieve the burdens on individuals and families, as well as make specific simplification recommendations to the committee.
The Ways and Means Committee hearing is scheduled April 13, 10 a.m. in Room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building, Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street, Washington, D.C.
