Business Roundtable’s interest in CbC reporting stems from the fact that the information requested in these reports includes sensitive competitive business information. Safeguarding the confidentiality of this information is key, which the Treasury’s proposed CbC reporting regulations recognize by providing the same confidentiality protection to CbC reports as to other tax return information.

BRT urges DHS to finalize and implement this regulation consistent with suggested modifications and looks forward to continued engagement with the agency on immigration issues.

Both the Senate and House versions of ESEA legislation contain elements that business leaders support, but more needs to be done to deliver a meaningful education to our students.
