Dear Speaker Pelosi, Republican Leader McCarthy, Majority Leader McConnell, Democratic Leader Schumer, Chairman Neal, Ranking Member Brady, Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Wyden:

The following organizations, representing diverse business, energy, transportation, community development and agriculture stakeholders that employ millions of workers, are writing to you regarding the need to address expiring tax provisions (“tax extenders”). We respectfully ask the House and Senate to pass legislation extending these provisions before the 116th Congress adjourns sine die.

Numerous tax extenders are currently set to expire at the end of 2020. Previous lapses of these temporary tax provisions have caused confusion and hardship for the many industry sectors and individuals that utilize these tax incentives. Allowing these tax extenders to lapse at the end of 2020 would undermine their effectiveness, threaten thousands of jobs in the U.S. economy and cause needless uncertainty for taxpayers at a time when many are coping with severe economic hardship. These measures have a direct impact on hiring, job retention, and business investment and their extension would have a positive impact on an economy in serious need of recovery.

Giving taxpayers stable tax rules by providing an uninterrupted extension of expiring tax provisions is a common-sense step Congress can take to help America’s entrepreneurs and job-creators navigate challenging economic times. Accordingly, we respectfully ask that you act to seamlessly address tax extenders before the beginning of the next Congress.

We sincerely appreciate your attention to this matter and stand ready to work with you to achieve this important objective.
