RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that tax reform should jointly address corporate and pass-through entities in a fiscally responsible manner, and that reform should reduce the current tax rate differences between corporate and pass-through entities while maintaining adequate forms of organization for businesses.

Whereas pass-through entities employ 54 percent of the private sector workforce;

Whereas pass-through entities are taxed at individual income tax rates; and

Whereas the top pass-through tax rate is now 39.6 percent for taxable income above $400,000 and the top corporate income tax rate is 35 percent: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that tax reform should jointly address corporate and pass-through entities in a fiscally responsible manner, and that reform should reduce the current tax rate differences between corporate and pass-through entities while maintaining adequate forms of organization for businesses.
