  • Reduce the amount of time and resources necessary to comply with tax laws.     
  • Substantially lower tax rates for individuals, with a goal of achieving a top individual rate of 25 per cent.  
  • Consolidate the current seven individual-income-tax brackets into two brackets with a first bracket of 10 per cent.     
  • Repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax.     
  • Reduce the corporate tax rate to 25 per cent.     
  • Transition the tax code to a more competitive system of international taxation.
