The Reforming America’s Taxes Equitably (RATE) Coalition – whose affiliated companies represent over 30 million employees in all 50 states – released the following statement on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Conference Report:

“We are proud of the diligence with which this Administration and this Congress have worked to craft historic tax reform. We are equally proud to fully support the end result of those efforts: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Conference Report. A critical fix to our broken tax system – one that punishes job-creating businesses of all sizes with the highest corporate rate in the industrialized world – the TCJA Conference Report would help our economy grasp the growth that’s well within its reach. Provisions similar to those included in this Conference Report have been projected to boost GDP, create new jobs, lift after-tax income for middle-class families, and encourage greater investment in our country. The RATE Coalition strongly urges Senators and Representatives to deliver those wins for American workers by sending this legislation to President Trump’s desk for signature as swiftly as possible.”
