The Coalition for a Prosperous America fights for tax reform that supports rebalancing trade, rebuilding domestic supply chains, and penalizing the offshoring of production or profits.
Pro-American Tax Policies
- CPA advocates changing our current international corporate tax system to sales factor apportionment because domestic companies should not be undercut by foreign and multinational corporations who can shift profits overseas to gain a tax advantage.
- CPA supports shifting towards a goods and services tax, offset by reducing domestic taxes on production. Value added taxes give companies in foreign countries an unearned trade advantage. A US goods and services tax would help domestic production and reduce the trade deficit.
- CPA supports tax incentives to spur new productive investment and employment as part of a broader strategy to re-shore or build industrial supply chains in the US. These incentives should be combined with assuring a strong market for domestic production here and protection from foreign trade predation.
