Looking for Brotherly Love for tax reform on July 29

The Liberty Bell, Philadelphia; click image for travel information from VisitPhilly.comMark your calendars, Philadelphia-area taxpayers. The chairmen of the House and Senate tax-writing committees want to hear your thoughts on tax reform on Monday, July 29.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) will visit two small businesses, one in and the other just outside the City of Brotherly Love.

Next Monday's second stop in the Dave and Max National Tax Reform Tour will start at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time at Mrs. G's TV & Appliances in Lawrenceville, N.J. The third-generation retail operation has been in business for more than 75 years. It is now run by the granddaughter of founders Abe and Beatrice "Mrs. G" Greenberg.

At 2 p.m. Eastern time, the Congressmen will stop at The Hub Centers for Meeting and Collaboration in Philadelphia. The Hub, created in 2004, provides meeting space as well as technology and business support services for local businesses and out-of-town business travelers. The Hub has three Philly locations; the tax reform session will be at the 2929 Arch Street center.

The focus of the metro Philadelphia trip, say the lawmakers, will be on how a simpler and fairer tax code can help small business and families, boost the economy, create jobs and improve wages.

In early July, Baucus and Camp kicked off their public tax reform tour by visiting a pair of Minneapolis-St. Paul area companies.

Again, if you can't make it to the Philadelphia area next week, you can let the tax writiers know your thoughts on tax reform via their tax reform website or by following their Twitter account @simplertaxes.
