Turmoil in Washington - A Practical Perspective
This panel will discuss practical approaches to navigating the current landscape in Washington. The panel will consider how taxpayers should be engaging with the IRS, Treasury, the Congress and other institutions in Washington, given staffing challenges and potential distractions. For example, which key tax administration issues should taxpayers be discussing with IRS leadership? What regulatory or other initiatives should be proposed to Treasury or the IRS? What, if any, legislative proposals (other than fundamental tax reform) should taxpayers be discussing with members of Congress and their staffs?
