Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.
Countries around the world have focused on driving increased investment, growth and job creation by lowering their corporate tax rates and modernizing international tax rules. The United States stands as an exception to this worldwide trend at a time when U.S. businesses face unprecedented global competition.
America is in urgent need of tax reform to increase growth and provide greater economic opportunity for all Americans.
This primer on tax reform focuses on the corporate income tax system and the changes needed to update the corporate income tax to allow American companies and their workers to be competitive in markets both at home and abroad and improve U.S. economic growth, which will result in higher wages and increased job creation in the United States.
