Share Your Experience with Tax Reform

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) encourages manufacturers to share how they are benefitting from the recent passage of a tax reform bill. NAM is collecting responses on what tax reform means to manufacturers and the impact it is having on their business and the lives of their employees. NAM will not attribute any information to any specific company without their permission, and their team will consolidate the data by state or district to break down the impact as much as possible.
