Below is an excerpt:
Still, few argue that the nation's existing tax code is easy to understand, or necessarily fair to all payers. David Brunori, a tax expert and professor of public policy at George Washington University, said the existing tax system disproportionately punishes many U.S. companies, particularly those with limited operations abroad.
“They bear the brunt of the corporate income tax,” he said. "Anybody who is in the U.S. and doesn’t have a lot of overseas operations tend to pay at the highest effective rates. There is absolutely no doubt about that.”
