COfT is a result of the inequities of federal tax laws that force single persons to pay higher tax rates than married persons earning the same incomes. This is a nonpartisan organization in Washington, D.C. that hopes to lobby congress for more equal treatment in tax levies. How much more does a single taxpayer have to pay than a married person with ihe same income? The penalty can be as high as 20 per cent. Didn't the Tax Reform Act of IIMW eliminate this inequity? No, it didn't go far enough, it did reduce the difference from a level as high as 4Z%, but they are not the same nor did it tackle the essential unfairness of a system of separate tax rates. The major inequity in today's system comes in the area of in- (unmn • mmkntt come splitting, which is an advantage to filing of joint returns of married couples, a widow has no such t a x benefit even though his or her res- p o n s ibilities may be equal to t h a t of a dren. married couple with chil- What does CO$T plan to do to, achieve tax reforms?
