Roundtable taps United Technologies CEO for tax reform push

The Roundtable, which represents CEOs from some of the largest corporations in the United States, began a campaign earlier this year called Home Court Advantage that urges Congress to enact comprehensive tax reform and simplify the U.S. tax code.

“I look forward to working with other Business Roundtable members to advance policies that encourage companies to invest, hire and expand,” Chênevert said in a statement.

Home Court Advantage specifically calls for “adopting a competitive corporate tax rate comparable to the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) average and transitioning to a territorial tax system similar to those of other developed countries.”

“Adopting a modern, competitive tax system and putting America’s fiscal house in order are two of the most urgent policy priorities of U.S. business leaders,” McNerney said.
