CNH Executive Testifies Before U.S. House Committee on Corporate Tax Reform

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - CNH Vice President of Corporate Tax Michael Wall testified on behalf of Case New Holland Inc. today before the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on the Budget at a hearing on The Need for Pro-Growth Tax Reform.

In his testimony, Wall remarked, "CNH believes that significantly reducing the U.S. corporate statutory tax rate, in conjunction with the adoption of a territorial tax system, will make the United States more competitive with other countries, significantly increase investment in the United States, and lead to much needed job growth for the American people."

In his testimony, Wall said that CNH's U.S. operations are helping the United States reach the National Export Initiative goal of doubling exports by the year 2015. As an example, Wall cited CNH's tractor plant in Racine, Wisconsin, which has exported 40% of its production so far this year.

"I would like to thank Case New Holland for testifying this morning on the need for corporate tax reform," said House Budget Committee Chairman and Wisconsin's First District Representative Paul Ryan. "Michael Wall of CNH effectively made the case that fundamental tax reform will increase the competitiveness of the U.S. businesses allowing firms like CNH to attract investment in a competitive global market and be a driving force for job creation in America," Ryan continued.

Wall concluded his testimony by thanking Chairman Ryan and the Budget Committee for the opportunity to share CNH's views on fundamental corporate tax reform and that CNH looks forward to working with the Budget Committee and Congress in considering these vitally important issues.

Joining Wall testifying at this morning's hearing were Scott Hodge, President of the Tax Foundation and Diane Lim Rogers, Chief Economist of The Concord Coalition.
