Washington, DC

Urges Legislative Action to Maximize Economic Growth

UPS® (NYSE: UPS), a global logistics provider and leading advocate for tax reform, commends the Administration and Congressional leaders on the release of a unified framework which details a plan for tax reform that will stimulate the economy, create jobs and develop a globally competitive tax structure. UPS strongly supports the tax reform outlined in this proposal.

“Tax reform is one of the single most important things this Congress and Administration can do for American competitiveness, said UPS chairman and CEO David Abney. “The principles are simple, reduce rates, eliminate loopholes, and simplify the code and you will create opportunity for growth. The tax system has not been updated in more than 30 years – it’s time to tackle that challenge.”

UPS hopes that Congress can seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to reform the U.S. tax code, stimulate economic growth and make American businesses of all sizes more competitive.
