Congressman Bruce Poliquin

Representing the 2nd District of Maine

Tax Reform

The current tax code is far too confusing, costly and outdated for hard-working families and small businesses in the Second District. A simpler tax code will help families better plan for the future and allow our small businesses to expand which will create more jobs.

Serving Maine, Congressman Poliquin will help support initiatives that will make the tax code much simpler and helpful for our hard-working families in the Second District.
