Who Should Take Action?

There are key Senators in the following states:

Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah & Wyoming

If you have operations in ANY of these states, we need your participation in this effort. Company outreach has historically been proven to be the most effective means of preserving LIFO, therefore it is extremely important for companies & CPA firms to get involved by contacting their SFC members in support of LIFO before it’s too late.

Tax Bill Timeframe

It’s anticipated that the Senate will release the details of their tax reform proposal by no later than next Monday & it’s imperative that companies reach out to their Senator’s in support of LIFO prior to their tax bill being released!

How to Take Action to Help Save LIFO

Contact your Senate Finance Committee members & urge them to keep LIFO repeal off the table today.
