Legislative Goals for the 107th Congress
Tax Related Issues

PROMOTE FAMILY-FRIENDLY TAX POLICIES THROUGH:

  1. Eliminating the tax penalty on marriage. The current tax code penalizes married

    couples an average of $1,400 simply for filing as a couple. This discrimination should end.

  2. Reducing the federal tax burden on all families. Support across-the-board reductions

    for all income brackets.

  3. Increasing the per child tax credit.

  4. Eliminate discrimination against large families in the tax code. Adjust or eliminate the

    Alternative Minimum tax and other measures that cap tax benefits on the basis of family size.

  5. Support efforts to pay off the national debt. HSLDA supports efforts to pay off the

    national debt. This debt represents taxation without representation to the children of this country.
