Tax Reform Talk: Wall Street Journal Highlights America’s High Corporate Tax Rate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Comprehensive tax reform has bipartisan and bicameral support. While the United States has the highest corporate tax rate in the world, leaders in both parties agree that a lower corporate rate and a simpler code will create jobs and boost economic growth. With overwhelming support, now is the time for action to make American businesses more competitive.

“Every year that the U.S. fails to reform its tax code, America becomes less competitive and more jobs are put at risk.”

– Wall Street Journal editorial, 10.27.13
