Editor's Note
The great thing about election time is that people talk about the issues and give some thought to what matters most. Whether your passion is a concern for a strong national defense, cleaner air and water, alternative energy, social reform, abortion and family planning, the economy, aid to foreign countries, mortgage lending, the cost of gasoline, college funding, health care, or simply the cost of a loaf of bread, there is something for everyone to discuss and, in many cases, argue.

Here at AccountingWEB we try to stay out of the arguments and stick to the tax and accounting news, but as the election approaches, there are still some tax controversies to discuss. This week we feature information about the candidate's tax returns, since people seem to think that has an impact on how well a president can lead the country. And for those who are interested in how taxes might change under a new leader, The Americans for Tax Reform Web site has published a comparison chart.

Best regards,
Gail Perry, CPA
