There are several tax blogs I keep track of. One, Start Making Sense, posted a few ideas about what the tax reform commission might propose. The actual report has been pushed back to September but the speculation has begun. What I enjoyed most from Prof. Shapiro's post, is the implied job security. The Commission was to look in to simplifying tax returns. but exchanging itemized deductions for credits or eliminating personal deduction for a credit does not seem to be simplifying anything to me.
No matter what the Commission comes up with, I am sure Congress will manipulate it around and make it a mess.
