Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates

The mission of the Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates is to educate Congress and key stakeholders that tax reform should be viewed through the lens of effective tax rates, the amount of taxes businesses actually pay. To accomplish this, the coalition will:

  • Establish effective tax rate fairness as the best metric to make meaningful comparisons among policy choices and how they would impact different business types and industries;
  • Use this metric to bolster the supporters of comprehensive tax reform that broadens the tax base while lowering tax rates for corporations, pass through businesses and individuals alike; and
  • Impress upon lawmakers and key stakeholders the negative impact that high effective tax rates have on job creation, economic growth, and the competitiveness of American businesses.
