FSR Welcomes Progress on Tax Reform

 

WASHINGTON – The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) welcomed today’s joint statement from the White House and Congressional GOP Leadership that they are making significant progress to move tax reform forward this year.

“Today’s announcement reflects Republican leaders have a unified purpose. They agree on key principles necessary to enact tax reform that will help jumpstart economic growth and create quality jobs for the American people,” said FSR CEO Tim Pawlenty. “FSR looks forward to being a constructive partner as this process moves forward this fall.”

Last week, FSR sent a letter to Senate Finance Chairman Hatch outlining its support for the Committee’s work to improve the American tax system in ways that bolster economic growth and create opportunity for more individuals and businesses. In its letter, FSR also urged Congress to bear in mind the financial industry’s unique business model and not to impose industry-specific taxes that single out any sector for adverse treatment.
