Tax Policy Now

RSM examines tax policy developments and what they mean for taxpayers

Tax policy is central to business strategies and results, but executives might struggle to understand the effects of new laws and regulations because of how complex they can be, how frequently they change and how dizzying legislative cycles can be. 

In RSM’s “Tax Policy Now” video series, our tax leaders explain how tax policy developments affect you by sharing their knowledge and experience in ways that illuminate your path forward. We sift through the uncertainty and noise, and make sense of the details to help you understand where tax policy is headed and how you should proceed accordingly. 

For additional information, view our Tax Policy Resource Center or contact Dan Ginsburg, national policy leader.
