    "IFDA commends the U.S. House of Representatives on the passage of H.R. 3441 – the Save Local Business Act. This legislation provides much needed clarity, protects business relationships, and promotes economic growth.

    IFDA Statement on Proposed Tax Reform Plan

    IFDA Statement on Proposed Tax Reform Plan

    IFDA applauds Chairman Kevin Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee, his colleagues on the Committee, and Republican leaders for producing a historic tax reform plan that will bring much needed relief to American businesses. The legislation would represent the largest reduction in business tax rates in our nation’s history and ensures closer parity between different industries. Wholesaler-distributors are currently taxed at an effective tax rate of 37%, which is significantly higher than many other industries. A tax plan that views reform through the lens of effective tax rates is more fair and equitable than our current system.  In addition, the bill immediately doubles the estate tax exemption and then phases in full repeal.  IFDA has long supported this kind of comprehensive tax reform.
