Two U.S. congressmen are visiting Memphis next week as part of what they’re calling a “Simpler Taxes for America” road tour across the country - an effort to advocate for comprehensive tax reform.

U.S. Rep. Dave Camp – R-Mich. and chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee – and U.S. Sen. Max Baucus – D-Mont. and chairman of the Senate Finance Committee – will visit the FedEx Express World Hub Sept. 9. They’ll talk with company leaders and customers about how the tax code affects their respective businesses.

Their first stop Monday will be at a family farm in Oakland for what’s being billed as a “kitchen table conversation.” The tour then moves to the FedEx World Hub.

The two committee chairmen have been traveling the country collecting feedback about the U.S. tax code. They started in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, meeting with workers and executives at 3M as well as at a family-owned bakery.

Then they headed to Pennsylvania and New Jersey to visit a few small businesses. Next up was a trip to Silicon Valley for meetings with tech companies Intel and Square.
