Tax Reform Now | U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Tax Reform Now

Comprehensive tax reform can transform America’s underperforming economy into a high performance growth engine — creating jobs, raising wages, and strengthening the global competitiveness of America’s workers and businesses.

 

 

TELL CONGRESS IT'S TIME TO GET TO YES ON TAX REFORM.

 

 

It has been 30 years since our tax code was updated and American businesses and workers are suffering as a result. True tax reform is going to require compromise and give and take.

We recognize that any viable tax reform plan will entail winners and losers amongst the Chamber’s diverse membership.

But we are willing to judge any tax plan based on one simple test: will it spur economic growth? If it does, we will be for it. And we hope you will be too.

The time has long since passed to get to “yes” on tax reform.

Business Owners Want Tax Reform

We don't need government to create the jobs, we need government to create an environment that allows a business like ours to grow and create the jobs. ...

There will always be taxes, but they don't have to be so punitive.”

Members of Congress Make the Case

Our broken tax code is one of the main reasons the United States lags behind when it comes to economic growth, job creation, and competitiveness. Without pro-growth tax reform, our workers and our businesses will continue to suffer.”

– Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), House Ways and Means Committee

We have a real opportunity to make significant changes to our entire tax system in order to encourage growth, create more jobs, and improve the lives of individuals and families around our country.” 

— Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)

What we need is fundamental tax reform.” 

— Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
