For Immediate Release

“We applaud leaders in the White House and Congress for releasing a unified agenda for tax reform that does not include the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT). FDRA has worked hard to lead the charge against the BAT, because a new tax on everyone who buys and sells shoes simply does not work for footwear consumers and companies. Now that the agenda has been released, we stand ready to work with the Administration and Congress to advance much-needed tax reform that will help grow our economy and create new footwear jobs across our supply chains.”
FDRA is the footwear industry’s business and trade association – representing over 80% of the entire U.S. footwear industry.
