Grassley On Tax Treaties and Protocols

Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Chairman, Senate Finance Committee
On Tax Treaties and Protocols
Tuesday, June 25, 2019
Later today, the Foreign Relations Committee is scheduled to consider four protocols to the United States’ tax treaties with Spain, Switzerland, Japan and Luxembourg.
I support swift action on these protocols both in Committee and the Senate, and urge my colleagues to vote yes on them.
I encourage the Committee also to take up the new tax treaties with Chile, Hungary and Poland as soon as possible.
These new treaties will provide important benefits to U.S. taxpayers and the U.S. government.
After years of discussion and debate, the time has come to move forward on all of these bilateral agreements.
