Tax Policy

Our National Tax Office helps you navigate a rapidly evolving policy landscape.

Keeping you apprised in a rapidly evolving policy landscape

A demanding and constantly evolving regulatory environment can reward businesses who are able to quickly pivot and make informed decisions. You need up-to-date, relevant insights that guide you in navigating an increasingly complex regulatory landscape and enable you to capitalize on tax opportunities, mitigate tax risk and build trust with stakeholders.

To help you stay ahead of legislative developments, we offer analysis and insight with you in mind to help you understand its impact on your business. Our tax technical professionals include former Congressional, IRS and Treasury staff who are adept at anticipating state and federal tax developments, interpreting new guidance, and considering the implications of a shifting regulatory environment.

While major legislative changes may not likely materialize before the 2024 elections, tax leaders must efficiently navigate recent and upcoming policy changes. There are still developments taking place in the state and federal level that tax leaders need to stay apprised of to better integrate these considerations into their strategic tax planning and business decisions.
