A greatly simplified tax code that stripped out the various incentives currently in place to buy a house, an energy-efficient car, home weatherization, and a thousand other myriad and sun- dry things would result in a tax code less costly to administer and comply with, as well as one more amenable to economic growth. It would permit us to keep the tax rates on work lower than they currently are.
