Utahns and local businesses deserve to keep their hard-earned money and use it as they please. Tax rates on both individuals and businesses are too high, discouraging investment and endangering the American dream. Americans not only pay a myriad of visible taxes, but also pay hidden taxes imposed upon them through burdensome regulations. In fact, dozens of “major” rules and regulations, each costing the economy more than $100 million, are added each year with little or no transparency. Moreover, the federal tax code is too cumbersome and complex to navigate, and the costs of complying with filing requirements are paid in both time and money. Simply put, the country’s tax system is a mess.
That’s why Mia will continue to work hard to simplify our nation’s tax code and reduce tax rates on families and businesses. She has a proven record of opposing tax increases and working to right-size the regulatory state. She will fight for real reforms until Utahns receive the relief they deserve.
