The controversial border adjustment tax (BAT) has been discarded from ongoing tax talks.

In a statement released yesterday, the six individuals crafting the top level principles that will guide tax reform this fall announced they will not include the BAT in any tax plan moving forward.

Eliminating the BAT from the tax reform discussions was a major goal of our association and industry, and one that involved the determined effort of many of you.  Gemini Shippers Group will continue to work with our partners in Washington DC to ensure that our association fights for the benefits of our membership.

Best regards
