CGCN Group: Leaders in Tax Policy Advocacy

Businesses are currently facing unprecedented levels of uncertainty, and a tumultuous Washington is only making it worse. It’s nearly inevitable that attempts to make changes to the tax code are coming, but those changes can still be shaped or stopped by those who cut through the noise to make a compelling case.At CGCN, we believe our elected officials in Washington want to do what’s best for America’s business, but pressures on all sides make this a difficult task. That’s where we come in. We can help you build strategic relationships and employ campaign-style tactics to help you both defend the elements of the tax code that are working and be a part of the conversation to make improvements when opportunities arise.

While others may take a wait-and-see approach, we believe in seizing favorable openings by working with a broad spectrum of influential voices including grassroots activists, the press, and rank-and-file members of Congress so that we have a strong base of support before we even approach key Congressional leaders.

But make no mistake, we will help you make your case to those at the top. The partners at the CGCN Group have unmatched experience in tax policy and are connected to the highest tax policymakers on Capitol Hill.

American businesses provide the livelihood and stability families and communities need to flourish. They drive innovation that makes life better for all of us. They’re the true champions of all of the good things that politicians like to promise. Lawmakers want your business to thrive. Let’s make sure they have the tools they need to make that happen!
