As a taxpayer for more for more than 50 years, I agree with your editorial "The Buffett Rule backlash" (April 13) in which you conclude that "taxing the wealthy at rates others already face is a matter of fairness."
However, the other major issue with reform of the tax code is the sheer complexity of the code itself.
Of note, today's tax code is 5,296 pages long. By comparison, the initial tax code in 1913 was 27 pages long.
