HOUSTON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — alliantgroup applauds last week’s joint statement on tax reform issued by congressional leadership and the administration and urges our nation’s lawmakers to capitalize on this opportunity to strengthen American businesses.

In order to ensure sustained economic growth and prosperity for all, our company deems reforming the American tax code as an absolute necessity. In issuing this joint statement, our elected officials have taken the initial steps in making tax reform a reality and have provided a roadmap to ensure the process moves forward for the first time in decades. alliantgroup encourages Congress and the administration to work in a bipartisan manner in the coming months to create a tax code that ensures sustained economic growth and opportunity for all Americans.

In their joint statement, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) reaffirmed their commitment to relieving the tax burden placed on American taxpayers and U.S. businesses.

alliantgroup’s clients have seen first-hand the importance of tax policy and its impact on American businesses. As a leading tax consultancy in the area of credits and incentives, our company has seen how vital incentives such as the Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit and the Section 179D tax deduction have been in encouraging job-creation, innovation and business investment. Taking into account the success of these programs, alliantgroup supports pro-business tax policy reforms, including provisions that would strengthen the R&D Tax Credit and extend the Section 179D deduction.

“The core mission of our firm has always been to strengthen U.S. businesses,” said alliantgroup CEO, Dhaval Jadav. “As such, alliantgroup offers its full support for policies that will help our clients and American companies grow and remain competitive. I encourage our leaders to work in a bipartisan manner to find policy solutions that will create jobs and increase economic opportunities for all Americans.”

alliantgroup’s mission is one of education and awareness—we exist to help U.S. businesses and their CPAs identify and properly claim all available government-sponsored tax incentives. To date, our firm has helped over 20,000 businesses claim more than $5 billion in federal and state tax incentives.
