- Excerpt from Congressman Camp Camp Releases His Long-Awaited Tax Reform Plan:
On February 26, 2014, David Camp (R-Mich.), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, released his long-awaited plan to reform and simplify the Internal Revenue Code.

Accordingly, we will mention only some significant highlights and keep you informed of future significant developments.
