This week CTJ wrote to ask the House Judiciary Committee to reject the so-called “Business Activity Tax Simplification Act” (BATSA). This legislation would make state and local taxes on businesses dramatically more complex, increase litigation related to business taxes, increase government interference in the market and reduce revenue to state and local governments by billions of dollars each year.
A recent report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities goes into more detail about why BATSA is so problematic.
