H.C.R. 5037 would memorialize Congress to enact legislation to sunset the IRS Code by December 31, 2000 and to develop and complete a replacement tax code for the American people. One provision of the resolution would express opposition to replacing the federal income tax with a national sales tax or "flat" income tax which could cause substantial shifting of the income tax burden to the average American citizen.
The House Committee amended the bill to express opposition to a national sales tax and flat income tax which would cause substantial shifts in the tax burden relative to current law.
