Carter Talks Tax Reform at Lee Container

Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) met with employees at Lee Container in Homerville this week to discuss the benefits of tax reform for businesses in the First District of Georgia. 

Speaking during the visit about the new federal tax law that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump, Carter said, "the proof is in the pudding. If you look at the figures that recently came out, the tax revenue for the month of January in this country is the highest it's ever been...It's no coincidence it happened in the first month of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act."

During the visit, the president of Lee Container, Robert Varnedoe, spoke about what federal tax reform means for their business. 

"The new tax law has allowed us to purchase at least three machines a year and to fully amortize them," said Varnedoe. "It allows our company to grow at a substantial rate.”
