AIADA Organizing Washington Push Against Proposed Border Adjustment Tax

Feb 27, 2017

The American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) is coordinating a fly-in to Washington, DC on March 8-9, 2017. Dealers from across the country will be meeting with their elected officials to voice the industry’s opposition to the proposed Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) that would negatively affect dealers, their employees and, most importantly, their customers.

The BAT proposal—currently set at 20%—is part of the House Republicans’ tax reform legislation and would drive up the cost of every vehicle sold in the United States by an average of $2,300, some dramatically higher. This would result in a $28 billion impact per year on the retail motor vehicle industry nationwide.

NJ CAR is organizing a group of NextGen Committee members to participate in the AIADA fly-in, and encourages other dealers to participate as well. For more information, and to register for the free event, visit the AIADA’s website at:

Advocacy is at the core of NJ CAR’s mission, and visits with our legislators are one of the best ways to advocate for our industry.
