Fact Sheet: Tax Reform is a Women's Issue

by Patrice Lee Onwuka

Tax reform offers an extraordinary opportunity to help women succeed in today’s economy. Our burdensome tax system slows our economy, reducing job creation and wage growth for women. Pro-growth policies that lower taxes for workers and business owners and simplify the tax code will provide much-needed relief.

Women are breadwinners and often mange the household budget, so they are acutely aware of how every dollar counts for themselves and their families. Female-owned businesses can reinvest tax savings in the economy and generate new jobs. It’s time for Washington to help women and families get ahead and craft the lives they want by allowing them to keep more of what they earn and giving them greater control over their resources.
