The CompTIA Federal Tax and Regulatory Committee focuses on policy issues that are relevant to the business of US technology companies. The perennial issue for the committee is tax reform, with lower corporate tax rates and movement to a territorial tax system. The committee also oversees policy on other tax issues, including the permanent extension of the R&D tax credit; and interstate tax issues, such as the Internet Tax Freedom Act, Online Sales Tax, Digital Download Tax, Business Activity Tax and Mobile Workforce.
In addition, the committee analyzes legislative and regulatory proposals, responds to requests from Congress and the administration, provides testimony for relevant tax issues and presents CompTIA Membership with networking opportunities with key decision makers.
