Congress is considering comprehensive tax reform to lower rates
for individuals and businesses and simplify the Internal Revenue
Code. The House Small Business Committee held a hearing April 13 to
review tax issues, and NRCA
Government Relations Committee Chairman Bob Kulp, co-owner of
Kulp's of Stratford LLC, Stratford, Wis., testified at the hearing
to discuss key tax issues important to the roofing industry.
Kulp began his testimony by noting "unemployment in the
construction industry remains at an alarming 20 percent," according
to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. He urged Congress to take
immediate action on tax reform measures that reduce barriers to
economic growth and job creation by simplifying the tax code.
