Providing Tax Certainty to Support Jobs & Innovation

“In Eastern Washington, this means local farmers and manufacturers will have more certainty to invest in the property and equipment necessary to grow and expand.”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) praised the bipartisan passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015. It includes a suspension of the harmful medical device tax, and provisions like the Research and Development Credit and Section 179 expensing are made permanent.

McMorris Rodgers released the following statement:

“Today, the House took important steps in our mission to provide more certainty and opportunity for job creators and their families. By voting to make some of the most important parts of our tax code permanent, and incentivizing the development of cutting-edge technology here in America, businesses and manufacturers of all sizes will have more of the edge they need to grow and compete in a dynamic economy. In Eastern Washington, this means local farmers and manufacturers will have more certainty to invest in the property and equipment necessary to grow and expand. The PATH Act will help keep jobs and innovation here in America.”
