Statement about the Joint Statement on Tax Reform from the Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates

“The Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates commends Republican leaders of Congress and the Trump administration for producing a set of principles for tax reform. We hope these concepts will soon be developed into comprehensive tax reform legislation that creates a more level playing field for businesses of all sizes across all industry sectors. We urge policymakers to view tax reform through the lens of effective tax rates, the amount businesses actually pay in taxes expressed as a percentage of income. Businesses should not be subject to vastly different effective tax rates if they earn roughly the same amount of money.”
