RILA’s Tax Committee is composed of tax executives of varying levels that focus on federal legislative and regulatory tax issues impacting leading retailers. In order to provide input, feedback, and leadership on the tax issues of the day, the RILA Tax Committee works with the Internal Revenue Service, the Treasury Department, and the tax-writing Committees of Congress on a routine basis.
In 2017, the Committee was actively engaged in defeating the border adjustable tax (BAT) that would have been devastating to the retail sector and was instrumental in helping achieve the retail industry’s long-standing goal of significantly reducing the corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 percent.
The Committee continues to be engaged in both tax legislative and regulatory issues of interest to leading retailers.
Tax executives participating on the Tax Committee benefit from:
- Building relationships with other leaders of the industry
- Forums where members can discuss operational practices and concerns, and pragmatic solutions to challenges
- The opportunity via in-person meetings and monthly conference calls to identify and respond to the challenges posed by tax legislation and regulation
The RILA Tax Committee has monthly calls and meets for in person meetings twice annually.
If you are interested in more information about the Tax Committee, contact Courtney Brooks, vice president, tax, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
