Take Action - U.S. House Tax Reform

The U.S. House tax reform proposal includes a recommendation to adopt a Border Adjustment Tax (BAT). The BAT proposes a discriminatory tax on all imported products—including promotional products. The BAT, which would function as a national sales tax, will significantly hurt American consumers, costing the average family at least $1700 a year, and will hurt the promotional products industry.
