About BRT

It's Time for Real Tax Reform

America's outdated tax system has produced slow economic growth. We have one of the highest tax rates in the world. American companies are disappearing along with good-paying jobs.

We need a plan to make America competitive again. Urge Congress to create opportunities for American companies and workers by passing pro-growth, comprehensive tax reform. Tell them we can’t wait any longer to give American workers the tax reform they deserve.
