ACTION ALERTS

Proposed Border Adjustment Tax
The U.S. House Republican tax reform proposal includes a recommendation to adopt a Border Adjustment Tax (BAT). The BAT poses a discriminatory tax on all imported products—including promotional products. This tax will significantly hurt American consumers and the nation’s largest employers by increasing the cost of everyday products.  The BAT, which would function as a national sales tax, could drive the unemployment rate back to the 2010 highs in the aftermath of the financial crisis.
