Ensuring states take a pro-jobs, pro-consumer approach to implementing federal tax reform.


The STAR (State Taxes After Reform) Partnership was formed to help the business community navigate the state legislative, executive, and regulatory reaction to federal tax reform. Since forming in early 2018, we have successfully educated state policymakers that blindly conforming to the federal changes would result in a significant state-level business tax increase, harming workers and employers.

A majority of states have followed our recommendation to decouple from federal base broadening provisions. States which fail to decouple from these provisions impose new barriers to high quality investment and the creation of career oriented jobs.
