FSI’s Statement on Tax Reform

November 2, 2017

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means released their draft tax reform bill. The Financial Services Institute (FSI) has issued the following statement:

“We are very encouraged that this draft protects the tax incentives for retirement accounts,” said Dale Brown, FSI President & CEO. “In addition to retirement savings incentives, FSI has long supported tax reform that safeguards the important role of independent contractors in our economy, and provides equitable treatment of pass-through entities operated by financial advisors. We look forward to working with members of Congress and the administration throughout this process to ensure the final tax reform bill achieves these purposes.”
