Advocacy

Tens of millions of American jobs depend on the retail industry. Retail helps drive our economy, and NRF exists to serve retail and help it grow.

Policy Agenda

With few of the credits and deductions that ease other industries’ tax burdens, retailers pay the highest taxes of any industry.
Credit and debit card swipe fees cost retailers and their customers $30 billion each year.
Drastic new overtime rules threaten America’s retail and restaurant managers, their careers and customers.
Retailers are making significant investments in technology to protect customers from fraud and data theft.
NRF is urging Congress to pass legislation requiring online sellers to collect sales tax the same as local stores.
Retailers using technology to create jobs and serve customers should be protected against "patent trolls."

Action center

Tax Reform

Retailers need comprehensive tax reform, but the BAT is bad tax policy that punishes middle- income and working-class families with higher prices for basic necessities like food, gas and clothing. Take action and contact Congress to let them know why a border adjustment tax would hurt retail and consumers.
