Tax Reform

Tax and Budget Header

After more than thirty years, bold tax reform has finally been signed into law. Manufacturers in the United States now have the opportunity to grow their business, and reinvest in their employees and their communities.

The new tax code means money can stay where it’s needed most—empowering manufacturing workers to invest in the community, support their families, grow the economy, create more secure jobs, and make U.S. manufacturing more competitive.

Manufacturers have been advocating for tax reform since 1985. The time is now.
