NRA joins coalition to advocate for fair tax rates

By The National Restaurant Association

The National Restaurant Association has joined the Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates, a new group that advocates for tax reform through fair, effective tax rates that businesses pay.

“In order to spur job creation and economic growth throughout the economy and the restaurant industry, there needs to be a focus on an equal treatment of businesses under the tax code,” said Scott DeFife, the NRA’s executive vice president of policy and government affairs. “By eliminating unwarranted tax preferences, lawmakers would have the opportunity to lower both corporate and individual tax rates and promote more robust economic growth.”
