Wholesaler-Distributors Urge Action on Tax Reform

September 27, 2017

Washington, DC (September 27, 2017) … “We have been waiting for this a very, very long time,” said Dirk Van Dongen, President of the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW).

“Our industry has one of the highest effective tax rates of any industry sector, and the overwhelming majority of our members are pass-through businesses, so tax reform that levels the playing field while reducing our non-competitive tax rates for all business types and sizes is welcome and long overdue.

“We commend the House and Senate leadership, the Chairs of the tax-writing committees, and the Administration for advancing a bold framework for real tax reform.”

“We look forward to seeing the details as tax reform legislation is developed, and understand that the process cannot move forward until both houses of Congress approve budget resolutions. We urge the House and Senate to move swiftly to adopt their budgets so that tax reform can proceed without unnecessary delay,” said Jade West, NAW Senior Vice President of Government Relations.
