Alliance for Competitive Taxation Statement on the Election of Donald Trump to serve as the President of the United States
WASHINGTON – The Alliance for Competitive Taxation (ACT), a coalition of more than 40 American businesses that employ millions of American workers, issued the statement below following the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States:
“The Alliance for Competitive Taxation congratulates Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States. The new administration and Congress must come together around policies that will boost economic growth, ensure our nation is best positioned to compete with the rest of the world and create good paying jobs that provide greater economic security for hard working American families. To achieve these goals, fixing our broken and outdated tax code must be at the top of the agenda for the next administration and Congress. We look forward to working with President-elect Trump and the new Congress to enact meaningful tax reform that includes establishing a modern international tax system and setting a competitive corporate tax rate to make the United States a place where companies want to do business and create jobs.”

ACT members support comprehensive tax reform that provides a competitive corporate tax rate and modern international tax system that aligns the United States with the rest of the world.
