Federal income tax contains many flaws and there are areas where changes could improve the Internal Revenue Code.
The tax advocacy memo provides you with the opportunity to express your thoughts and opinions on changes to the Internal Revenue Code which would make the Code better, fairer, and easier to administer.
Your representative in the U.S. Congress, the Honorable William Ramirez, knows that you are taking advance taxation at Portland State University. He requests you to consider various avenues and opportunities to improve the Internal Revenue Code. He has asked you to write an advocacy memo on tax reform
(1) your 2 most important recommendations for tax reform and
(2) the reasons and rationale for your recommendations.
Your memo should include references that Congressman Ramirez can check.
Representative Ramirez will be testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee on
Tuesday, November 3rd and has asked that you deliver your memo to him on Thursday, October 29th so that he can review your memo over the Thanksgiving holiday before he testifies.
The memo should be between 2 to 3 pages in length. The page limitation does not apply to charts or bibliography.
If you have any further questions, please contact Congressman Ramirez.
