Tax reform is now at the top of the Congressional agenda. It’s success could well be in the hands of six men who have taken up the task of developing a tax reform bill that can actually pass both houses of government. With the month of August upon us we need to remind ourselves that we still have a chance to influence the content of the bill by sending letters, emails and tweets to the “Big Six”.
Please see this link to my earlier post which will lead you, in turn, to the list of contact addresses.
Another person we should be adding to our contacts list is Shahira Knight of the National Economic Council who is working closely with the “Big Six”. In an article by Nancy Cook and Josh Dawsey, Shahira Knight is said to have been acting as “the face of the administration’s tax push”.
UPDATE: In fact, Shahira Knight has a title. She is “Special Advisor to the President for Tax and Retirement Policy”. You bet she needs to hear from us!
You can address letters to her at:
Shahira Knight, National Economic Council, The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 2050
