Taxes

The Chamber is fighting for a smarter, streamlined tax system allowing taxpayers to make smarter decisions about how they work, save, and invest, and unleashing the power of American businesses—large and small—to create jobs.

We are advancing a pro-growth tax agenda to lower tax rates for businesses and individuals alike, establish a more economically rational tax base, and simplify compliance and administration.
