Prevent Architecture Firms From Paying Higher Taxes

Congressional leaders have unveiled a plan to rewrite our nation’s tax code, but thousands of architecture firms could be excluded from lower tax rates. We need to tell Congress – right now – that such a move is unacceptable.

This particular provision would prevent architecture and other professional service companies that organize as pass-through entities from paying a new 25% tax rate, forcing them to pay higher individual rates. Nearly three in five architecture firms organize this way, and an increase in taxes will prevent them from hiring new staff, investing in new software, and ultimately serving their communities.

We need you to let Congress know that architecture firms are crucial to the economic health and well-being of the country and need to be treated fairly in tax reform. Contact your legislators today and tell them to give architects access to the same small business rates as other industries.
