With congressional leaders set to mark up the Biden Administration’s budget-busting $3.5 trillion spending package, National Center Executive Vice President Justin Danhof, Esq., joined with other conservative leaders, luminaries and elected officials in a coalition letter opposing “any effort to raise taxes on American families and businesses.”

Signers told House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal and Ranking Member Kevin Brady that the assertion that billionaires and large corporations will be paying the bulk of proposed taxes is “false.”

They explained the reality of the situation:

Millions of small businesses will see higher taxes through the increase in the corporate tax and the top marginal income tax rate. In addition, the plan to repeal step-up in basis will raise taxes on family-owned businesses across the country.

The letter added that retroactive tax policy like the one under consideration “changes the rules on taxpayers after the fact” and “is fundamentally unfair and erodes confidence in the tax system.”

With inflation and consumer prices climbing and job creation falling, signers pointed out that “[n]ow is one of the worst times to raise taxes on American families and businesses.”
