Fertilizer maker CF Industries welcomes possible US border tax

Feb 16 (Reuters) - U.S.-based CF Industries Holdings Inc , the third-largest global nitrogen fertilizer producer, would welcome a U.S. border tax on imports, as it would mirror conditions the company already faces selling into other markets, Chief Executive Tony Will said on Thursday.

A House Republican plan would cut corporate income tax to 20 percent from 35 percent, exclude export revenue from taxable income and impose a 20 percent tax on imports. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba)
