National Taxpayers Union (NTU) today applauded leaders and Members of the United States House of Representatives for fulfilling their promise of delivering much-needed tax relief to Americans by passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Following its passage in the House, NTU President Pete Sepp stated, “NTU is proud to support a pro-growth tax reform bill that prioritizes jobs and investments here while enhancing our competitiveness abroad. Important changes in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act mean middle-income taxpayers will keep more of their own money, small business owners will have more financial breathing room to grow, and larger companies will be able to expand their workforces. Now the Senate should give this bill the final push needed to reach the President’s desk.
After 31 long years of talking about tax reform, Washington is finally on the verge of acting. Our nation’s taxpayers can, and should, be able to celebrate 2017 as the long-overdue year in which the tax system began working for them rather than the other way around.”
NTU has been on the frontlines of promoting tax reform since 1969. Last week the organization led a coalition statement supporting passage of TCJA that was signed by 34 free market, limited government, and pro-taxpayer organizations.
