2.7.4 Border Tax Adjustments

LPDD Recommendation: “Congress should use carbon-based border tax adjustments to address leakage concerns as part of a broad climate change policy that may include a cap-and-trade scheme. Congress should include border tax adjustments that comply with GATT Articles I and III and the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures in a comprehensive carbon tax or other broad climate change policy.”

LPDD Recommendation: “Congress should avoid unilateral measures that distinguish between domestic goods and services from ‘like’ imports unless they can show that these goods and services are not competitively substitutable.”
