       COMPLEX TAX CODE PLACES BURDEN ON FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES

  Mr. MARCHANT. Mr. Speaker, this week, American citizens and 
businesses across the country will be surprised by the amount of their 
annual tax bill.
  This surprise is a direct result of a staggering 4 million-word tax 
code filled with confusing deductions and loopholes that make it 
difficult to understand and file tax returns.
  The basic fact is that the tax code is overly complex and out of 
date. It places an enormous burden on families and businesses and needs 
to be reformed and simplified.
  Families and businesses paying taxes throughout the year should not 
be burdened each April by an additional round of time-consuming and 
expensive tax filing headaches.
  Americans deserve better.
