AIA and PCI Send Joint Letter Regarding Federal Tax Changes and Rate Filings

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- JANUARY 31, 2018 -- The American Insurance Association (AIA) and the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued a letter to state insurance commissioners today responding to the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and the Center for Economic Justice’s (CEJ) oversimplified and overstated claims about the federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act.

The AIA/PCI letter highlights that the property and casualty insurance industry’s outstanding track record of price competitiveness means that any bottom-line benefits of the tax bill will ultimately be felt by consumers in the marketplace. However, the impact of the new tax law will differ significantly from insurer to insurer, from line of business to line of business and from state to state. Therefore, AIA and PCI are urging state insurance regulators to carefully consider the complexity of the tax law and the different impact across products and lines of business.

The letter from AIA and PCI is available here.
