Parallel to the House-Senate conference on extending the payroll tax cut, the Senate Committee on Finance held a special hearing this Tuesday to examine the 50 or more tax extenders that expired in December.  The hearing was titled: Extenders and Tax Reform: Seeking Long-Term Solutions.

According to a Monday article in Accounting Today,

“At Tuesday’s hearing, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., ranking republican member Orrin Hatch, R-Utah and the witnesses discussed how best to approach tax extenders in order to create certainty and allow businesses to invest confidently and create jobs.”

“Witnesses that testified include Rutgers University economics department chair Rosanne Altshuler, George Mason University senior research fellow Jason J. Fichtner, University of Texas Law professor Calvin H. Johnson, and U.S. Chamber of Commmerce chief tax counsel Caroline L. Harris.”
