FSR Statement on Senate Tax Reform Concept Release

FSR reviewing tax proposal unveiled this week

 

WASHINGTON—Release of Senate tax reform concept language is another pivotal step forward in the legislative process to delivering a tax code that is simpler, fairer, and increases economic opportunity for Americans said the Financial Services Roundtable (FSR).

“America needs a better tax code that will help our country go on economic offense and boost wages for more hardworking Americans,” said FSR CEO Tim Pawlenty.

FSR is reviewing the tax proposal outlined this week to ensure it increases economic opportunity, creates more good-paying jobs, incentivizes workers to save for retirement, and helps more Americans access important financial products and services. FSR looks forward to receiving further details regarding the proposal.

FSR CEO Pawlenty outlined the importance of business and individual tax reform in an op-ed for the Hill. A recent FSR/Morning Consult poll showed three in four voters (73%) say passing a tax reform bill should be a top or important priority for Congress and nearly nine in ten (87%) say it’s important to simplify the U.S. tax system. View more poll highlights here.
