Small Businesses to Lobby Congress to Oppose Border Tax

About 60 small business owners and a representative from retailer Big Lots will hold meetings with members of Congress this week in an effort to oppose a proposed “border adjustment tax,” organizers said.

Retailers led by large stores including Target, Best Buy and Autozone are trying to get Republicans to abandon the tax as a piece of any sweeping tax reform. The measure would impose a tax on imports while favoring domestic production.

The meetings, which will begin on Tuesday and conclude on Thursday, will include lawmakers and staff from several states including Arizona, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, focusing on districts represented by members who have not taken a position on the tax or sit on the Ways and Means Committee. They hope to convince them to oppose the tax.

The meetings are the latest effort by retailers to lobby lawmakers to not support a tax they say would increase consumer
