This notice advises all interested persons of the initial public meeting of the President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform. Background: Executive Order 13369 (January 7, 2005) established the President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform. The Order provides that the purpose of the Advisory Panel shall be to submit to the Secretary of the Treasury a report with revenue neutral policy options for reforming the Federal Internal Revenue Code. The options should (a) simplify Federal tax laws to reduce the costs and administrative burdens of compliance with such laws; (b) share the burdens and benefits of the Federal tax structure in an appropriately progressive manner while recognizing the importance of homeownership and charity in American society; and (c) promote long-run economic growth and job creation, and better encourage work effort, saving, and investment, so as to strengthen the competitiveness of the United States in the global marketplace. At least one option submitted by the Advisory Panel should use the Federal income tax as the base for its recommended reforms. Purpose: This is the first meeting of the Advisory Panel. The meeting will include background information presentations concerning the Federal tax system.
