Principles for Reform

The LIFT America Coalition supports tax reform that modernizes the U.S. international tax system to the benefit of all Americans workers and employers. Our mission is to advance economic growth, job creation and innovation in today’s highly competitive global marketplace.

In that spirit, the LIFT America Coalition believes comprehensive international corporate tax reform should:

Remove the toll charge…

Eliminate the double layer of taxation on overseas earnings that currently prevents that capital from being freely invested in the U.S. economy.

Simplify The Tax Code…

Make reforms permanent and provide the certainty needed to make America the world’s most attractive place to locate and build a business.

Protect the U.S. Tax Base…

Create clear and manageable standards for globally engaged U.S. headquartered companies who pay taxes at home and abroad.

Reduce the Corporate Tax Rate…

Apply revenues generated by tax reform to the reduction of the U.S. corporate tax rate and the costs associated with transitioning to a modern international system.

Use reality-based scoring…

Utilize scoring rules that take into account the reality of the pro-growth benefits of tax reform on the U.S. economy and more specifically for American workers.
