alliantgroup To Join Senator Cornyn In Announcing Small Business Taxpayer Bill of Rights

HOUSTON (April 6, 2012) — U.S. Senator John Cornyn will be in Houston Wednesday, April 11, in advance of Tax Day to announce the introduction of comprehensive legislation to assist small business owners and taxpayers in cutting through IRS red tape. Senator Cornyn's Small Business Taxpayer Bill of Rights Act of 2012 would lower compliance burdens for taxpayers, strengthen taxpayer protections, compensate taxpayers for IRS abuses, and improve taxpayer access to the tax court.
Now more than ever, as the economy struggles to recover, small and medium business owners should be spending less time dealing with the IRS and the complicated tax code and more time creating jobs and opportunity.
While in town, Senator Cornyn will visit the locally owned family business Forge USA, a metal forging manufacturer in business in Houston for more than 50 years and an alliantgroup client. Forge USA owners endured significant financial burdens and a tough audit experience – a process that is often unfriendly to taxpayers. Forge USA worked closely with alliantgroup, a leading provider of specialty tax services, who will be represented at the event by Mark Everson, alliantgroup current vice chairman and the former IRS Commissioner.
alliantgroup was asked by Senator Cornyn's team for thoughts and input on his Taxpayer Bill of Rights, and worked with CPA partners to formulate ideas and suggestions for the Senator's consideration, which are reflected in some of the provisions of the Senator's bill.
In addition to Mr. Everson, Senator Cornyn will be joined by Forge USA's owners, Wade Brougher and Jerry Brougher as well as local business leaders, including incoming Chairman of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Marc Rodriguez; and representatives from the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and the Texas Association of Business.
