AICC Joins 528 Business Groups and Chambers in Advocating for Passage of Tax Extenders

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, joined more than 500 associations, business advocacy groups and chambers of commerce across the country in calling on House and Senate leaders to pass a business tax extenders bill before the conclusion of this session of Congress.

In a letter sent on Tuesday, November 18, business groups urged the House and Senate tax-writing committees to work together “to extend seamlessly, enhance or make permanent the expired and expiring tax provisions." The letter went on to say, “These tax provisions are critically important to U.S. jobs and the broader economy.” To read the letter and see the co-signing organizations, click here or on the title above to read more.
