Dean Zerbe, alliantgroup’s National Managing Director, was recently quoted in Investment News. In a piece addressing the Senate Finance Committee’s tax reform initiatives, the article focused on committee chairman, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and current ranking committee member, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), and their efforts to solicit the public for ideas to overhaul the tax code.
Weighing in, Zerbe applauded the committee’s efforts to reach out to taxpayers whose views are normally overlooked in tax policy discussions taking place on Capitol Hill.
“The committee is most interested in hearing from people who don’t normally come forward,” said Dean Zerbe, National Managing Director of alliantgroup and former Republican Tax Counsel for the Senate Finance Committee. “It’s really an opportunity for people who are not having their voices heard, who don’t have the big lobbying shops working for them.”
In the article, Zerbe further encouraged taxpayers and their respondents to reach out to committee lawmakers as they seek guidance on the tax issues that matter most to the public.
“They very much want to understand how things are working in practice,” Mr. Zerbe said.
