As some of my previous blogs have outlined, I travel to Washington D.C. often to attend important hearings, usually almost always on the topic of tax. I just returned from my most recent visit to the nation’s capital where I attended a Ways and Means Committee hearing on the topic of tax reform and how it could potentially grow our economy and create jobs across America.
The hearing took a close look at tax reform policies (as opposed to a simple tax cut policy) that will generate economic growth, create jobs and increase pay checks for those working in the United States. Witnesses spoke about specific policy proposals surrounding possible tax reform under President Donald Trump. It was extremely exciting to be present at the hearing. I was even fortunate enough to have a conversation with House Ways and Means committee Chairman, Kevin Brady (R-TX). I enjoyed walking back to the Capital with him, a picture of us can be found below. I spent the remainder of my time in D.C. speaking with representatives from both parties and meeting with business owners and executives.

My next trip to D.C. will be in June or July to meet with U.S. Representatives and legislative aids in June or July. I will be sure to share details on our blog. In the meantime, be sure to follow us here on our website and also through our social media outlets for the latest in tax news.
