Published September 12, 2012
Washington (Sept. 12, 2012) – Jeffrey A. Porter, vice chair of the American Institute of CPAs’ Tax Executive Committee, will testify on Thursday, Sept. 13, at a hearing titled, Adding to Uncertainty: Small Businesses’ Perspectives on the Tax Cliff, that will be held by the House Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access.
Porter will testify that it is important for Congress to reach an agreement as soon as possible about expiring tax provisions because tax uncertainty hinders small businesses and their owners from making informed business and financial decisions. Any further delay will magnify the frustration of many small business owners and adversely impact tax administration.
The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. ET in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building, Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street, S.W., Washington, D.C.
The AICPA’s testimony will be available on Sept. 13 from Shirley Twillman at email@example.com.
