New Congress.
New Administration.

Get the Scoop,
or Get Left Behind.

Efforts by both Democrats and Republicans are already underway to make changes to corporate and individual taxes, international and domestic, in 2017.

Though we may not see a big bill “go to the floor” in the next few months, the framework and details of future bills are being designed right now.

Even the introduction of a single bill, by a single member can greatly affect economic markets. Information on tax activity in Washington can be crucial to your investments and actions.

Tax Intelligence That Speaks to Your Bottom Line

Tax-related work should already be underway for your best chance of success. It is indeed a race and a contest of tax expenditures, and many interests will be left out at the end of the day. 

To not get left in the dust, you need to be both proactive (seeing changes you need) and reactive (not being an offset for changes someone else needs).

There is certainly no shortage of information available, but much of what is out there is simple information, “rumor” and “white noise” at best – often press releases or articles simply regurgitating the same information.

Finding quality information and more importantly– analysis of quality information– is not an easy task.  But that is an area in which we excel, both in the legislative arena and in the regulatory one.
