Alliance for Competitive Taxation Applauds Senate and House Leaders For Advancing Tax Reform
WASHINGTON, The Alliance for Competitive Taxation (ACT), a coalition of leading American businesses that employ millions of American workers, issued the following statement on the Conference Report of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
We applaud leaders in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House for reaching an agreement on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Conference Report. This pro-growth tax reform bill is a major step in leveling the playing field for American businesses competing in world markets and will create opportunities for American workers.
We urge members of the Senate and House to swiftly pass this historic legislation that will strengthen our economy, promote investment in the U.S. and create American jobs.
We are committed to working with Congress and the Administration beyond final passage of this legislation to ensure that tax reform achieves the desired goal of benefiting American workers and promoting U.S. competitiveness and economic growth.‚
ACT is comprised of leading American businesses that employ millions of American workers from a broad range of industries, including technology, manufacturing, and services. ACT members support comprehensive tax reform that provides a competitive corporate tax rate and modern international tax system that aligns the United States with the rest of the world. We believe tax reform should simplify the tax code and promote economic growth. For more information about ACT, visit¬†www.ACTonTaxReform.com.
