Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart

Representing the 25th District of FLORIDA

Tax Relief

American families work hard, yet are burdened with a complex and costly tax code. I strongly believe that tax relief is an important step in securing a healthy economy and stimulating job growth. Tax relief helpes honest, hard-working people save more of their earnings while stimulating the country's economy. 

I support efforts to eliminate unfair taxes, such as the marriage penalty and the death tax. I will continue to support these measures and others that seek to eliminate unfair taxes that only prevent economic growth, savings and job creation. 

Ultimately, our federal tax code needs fundamental reform so that Americans can be freed from the burden of complexity our current system poses. Individuals and businesses waste billions of dollars and hours just trying to comply with the federal income tax code. It is imperative that we return fairness and simplicity to our federal tax policy and remedy this situation. Floidians work hard for their money and they deserve more control over it.
