New Survey Finds 7 in 10 Americans Want Congress to Pass Comprehensive Tax Reform

According to the survey, 59% of Americans also support lowering the corporate tax rate.

The American Action Network (AAN)’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative (MCGI) released a survey on Tuesday that found 73 percent of Americans want Congress to make passing comprehensive tax reform a top priority.

According to the survey, “73% of respondents believe passing a comprehensive tax reform bill should be a ‘top’ priority or ‘important’ priority for Congress.”

The survey also found that 59 percent of Americans support lowering the corporate tax rate, while 72 percent say the tax system is too complex and 67 percent say it is unfair to individuals.

A majority of Americans also think the current tax code fails to keep jobs and companies in America.

“The more Americans hear about tax reform, the more they want Congress to prioritize and pass meaningful pro-growth tax reforms. Poll after poll shows that a strong majority of Americans widely support fixing our broken tax system and lowering tax rates for working families,” AAN’s Executive Director Corry Bliss said in a statement.

“Americans recognize that a complex and unfair tax code has caused jobs and companies to flee our country,” Bliss continued. “It’s time to for Congress to act and make this right. There’s nothing more important for middle-class families, our country and our economy than seeing lawmakers come together to pass meaningful tax reforms that will fuel growth for all.”

The national online survey of 1,992 register voters was conducted from September 19-21, 2017, and comes just a day before Republicans are expected to release details of their plan.
