RILA works to
advance the legislative and regulatory needs of its retail members at the federal and state levels of government by educating decision makers on critical tax issues facing the retail industry, developing innovative solutions to these issues and advocating for their implementation.
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) has long advocated for enacting comprehensive reform that fosters economic growth and restores America's global competitiveness. RILA supports comprehensive, base-broadening, rate-reducing, revenue-neutral tax reform which narrows the discrepancies in effective tax rates (the rate that businesses actually pay) between industry sectors.
RILA urges Congress to broaden the base and introduce comprehensive reform that promotes a balanced tax system that fosters overall economic growth and job creation. As a part of this effort, the U.S. Senate Finance Committee created five bipartisan tax working groups around Individual Income Tax, Business Income Tax, Savings & Investment, International Tax, and Community Development & Infrastructure to spur congressional comprehensive reform. Of the five bipartisan tax working groups, RILA submitted letters to the Business Income Tax, Individual Income Tax, and International Tax groups. Links to each letter, can be here.
