International Tax Policy

As the leading business organization on international tax issues, the NFTC advocates for tax policies that strengthen U.S. companies’ global competitiveness, spur investment across broad sectors of the economy and benefit working Americans.

Through its Tax Committee, the NFTC works with member companies to advance shared priorities across international organizations, foreign jurisdictions, tax treaties and U.S. legislative and federal rulemaking priorities.

NFTC’s tax work is concentrated on the following issues:

  1. Domestic Legislation: Advocating for domestic tax legislation – including reform of GILTI, domestic policy priorities and potential future legislative efforts to implement an OECD agreement – that strengthens our member companies’ ability to compete internationally.
  2. Domestic Regulatory Framework: Ensuring that any new tax regulation helps reduce uncertainty for businesses and does not add to unnecessary administrative burden on companies.
  3. International Regulatory Framework: Promoting international tax policies that promote non-discriminatory access to international markets and ensure that U.S. companies can compete on a level playing field abroad.
  4. Intersection of Trade and Tax Policies: Engaging across the U.S.  government and International Organizations on a growing range of issues that involve tax and trade policymakers on issues like digital taxes, customs valuation and VAT collection, and climate-related tax incentives and border adjustment mechanisms.
