AFP Asks Lawmakers to Reject Tax Extenders Revival 

Mar 21, 2019 by AFP

ARLINGTON, Va. – In response to reports this morning that the House Ways and Means Committee is set to mark-up tax legislation in the coming weeks, and will consider reinstating harmful tax-extenders, Americans for Prosperity Vice President of the Economic Opportunity Portfolio Russ Latino issued the following statement:

“Fifteen months ago Congress rightly let a set of tax carve outs for well-connected industries, called tax extenders, to expire. Now, some in Congress are pushing to revive these instruments of corporate welfare, that benefit the few at the expense of American taxpayers. Bringing these giveaways back is bad tax, fiscal and economic policy. What is dead should remain dead.”

Background:

Last week Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Partners sent a joint letter to Congress in opposition to any legislation that would revive tax extenders, such as the Tax Extender and Disaster Relief Act of 2019.
