    As US lawmakers continue their efforts to reach an agreement on comprehensive tax reform during the 114th Congress, it has become increasingly evident that achieving such reform will be challenging at best. Nevertheless, as part of the Senate Finance Committee’s approach to tax reform, Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) formed five Tax Reform Working Groups to put together targeted, substantive proposals for the Committee. Recently, the Working Groups announced that they will be accepting public comments on tax reform, which presents the public and key stakeholders with an opportunity to weigh in on tax reform. Given that efforts on tax reform this Congress will, at a minimum, serve as place markers for future reform, the Squire Patton Boggs Tax Public Policy Group encourages interested parties  to participate and stands ready to assist in the process.
