This Wednesday, June 7, 2017, tax reform expert, Julio Gonzalez, will attend The Latino Coalition’s (TLC) panel in Washington, D.C., regarding tax reform. The panel is titled: “Why do we need Tax Reform: how will it affect Industry and Small Business”. It will be led by moderator, Hector Barreto, who is the chairman/CEO of TLC.
Other panelists include Eric Grey, Director, Government Relations, Edison Electric Institute, Pete Sepp, President, National Taxpayer Union & NTU Foundation, and Rachelle Bernstein, Vice President and Tax Counsel for the National Retail Federation. Congressman Carlos Curbelo, Florida 26th District, will be speaking.
Julio indicated in a recent speech that, “Tax Reform is difficult. With tax reform you are taking money from one group and giving that money to another group and the group that is losing will fight hard to save it. It is much more difficult that tax rates cuts which are lowering tax rates.” Our Hispanic communities are greatly impacted by the proposed tax reform blueprint proposed by the Ways and Means committee. We agree as a group that tax reform is important. We feel like there could be a few areas within the proposed blueprint which could have unintended consequences for small business owners that could hurt the growth of GDP. This event will be a good forum for us to talk about these concerns so that we are helping with a tax reform approach that is good for all Americans.”
If you would like to attend the panel (for free), you can sign up here. It takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Rayburn Building: 45 Independent Ave SW, Washington, D.C.
