Information Technology Industry Council Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Does Lowering the Federal Corporate Income Tax Rate Create Jobs?"
Reasoning:

“ITI advocates for tax reform that levels the international playing field. We consistently have urged the federal government to enact a tax system that makes America more competitive and a magnet for job creation and business investment. In working with Congress, ITI seeks to lower the corporate rate in a fiscally responsible manner, move to a territorial system that keeps job creators from being taxed twice on their earnings, and make permanent incentives for breakthrough research and development. These pillars will help to spark job creation and innovation throughout the US economy.”
