Pro-Growth Tax Reform Signed Into Law

 

WASHINGTON – The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) released the following statement after the President signed into law a tax reform bill to make American businesses of all sizes more competitive and increase economic opportunity for individuals and families:

“Modernizing America’s tax system will help ignite economic growth, make our businesses more competitive, add jobs and increase paychecks,” said FSR CEO Tim Pawlenty. “This is a victory for American taxpayers and we look forward to working with policymakers to further increase economic opportunity in communities across the country.”

FSR has been at the forefront of tax reform advocacy. FSR CEO Pawlenty outlined the importance of business and individual tax reform at a POLITICO Playbook Interview event and 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.
