ABA Applauds Congress for Passing Comprehensive Tax Reform

“Congress made history today by giving final approval to the most significant changes to the nation’s tax code in more than three decades. We commend Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell, Chairman Brady, Chairman Hatch, and members of the House and Senate for this significant achievement.
 
“The changes in this bill, particularly the reduction in business tax rates, will help grow the economy and create jobs, which will benefit all Americans. Thanks to this legislation, America’s banks will get to expand their role as the lifeblood of the economy by increasing financial services, investing in new and more convenient technologies, and opening more doors of opportunity for their customers.  

“While we wish this legislation did more to end the unfair, unnecessary and outdated tax advantages enjoyed by credit unions and the Farm Credit System, we still believe it will grow the economy, create jobs, and help our members better serve their communities. We are proud to support the bill and look forward to President Trump signing this historic legislation into law.”
