I agree. The tax code needs a complete overall, and annual updates after that so that it is responsive to new developments and needs. Tax provisions get codified and are never updated.

I would not be surprised to see a major tax bill next year. There will be a one year window before the presidential campaigning heats up and Paul Ryan will be heading up the Ways and Means Committee. I may be delusional, but I think that he could craft a deal with Obama. Unfortunately, any "reform" will be diluted by the demands of special interests and their lobbyists.

I do have some sympathy for corporations facing the double taxation issue. It would be a huge boost for the economy if all of that offshore money could be repatriated. It would be interesting to know the origin of the inversion loophole.
