Republicans in congress are working on the framework for a new tax reform proposal this week after failing in an attempt to change the current healthcare system. U.S. Senator Ron Johnson in an interview earlier this year with DoorCountyDailyNews.com says he believes it is time to simplify the tax code.
Johnson says another key part of his proposal would have the business owners pay the corporate tax rather than employees or consumers. The proposed plan by Republicans would have current tax brackets for individuals lowered from the high of 39.5 percent to 35 percent. According to NBC news, the plan would also call for lowering the corporate tax bracket to about 20 percent from the current 35 percent rate.
