Reps. Tiberi (R-OH) and Camp (R-MI) plan to hold a hearing to review individual tax extenders (including the New Markets Tax Credit) in April. The Hill has a story, and you can read their release below:
Camp, Tiberi: Review of “Extenders” to Start in April
Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) and Select Revenue Measures Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) issued the following statement:
“Far too many provisions in the tax code are temporary, making it hard for employers to plan, invest and create new jobs for American families. That is one reason why we are committed to comprehensive tax reform. An important part of comprehensive reform is to conduct a thorough review of the various targeted provisions in the Code commonly referred to as ‘tax extenders.’ In 2010, House Republicans led the charge to review these provisions and over 70 (estimated at over $100 billion) were cleaned out of the Code. In 2012, we must again examine these extenders, and the Committee will begin that process after the April recess. We look forward to hearing from interested parties about the merits of these tax policies.”
NOTE: The exact date, time, and format of a tax extender hearing has not yet been set and will be formally announced by the Committee at a future date. However, Chairmen Camp and Tiberi expect the date will be in April.
