As mentioned in a prior post, Meissner Tierney President and Shareholder, Tom Nichols, participated in a Capitol Hill panel discussion hosted by the Tax Foundation on May 15, 2017. Members of the panel discussed how entrepreneurship has slowed in the recent decades and pointed out how specific aspects of the current U.S. tax code discourage entrepreneurs and inhibits growth of successful businesses. The four member panel outlines how tax business policies could be crafted to encourage entrepreneurs and expansion of businesses.

Tom has extensive experience in the tax area at both the state and federal levels. Over his 35+ years of practice, he has done a great deal of work involving business entities, tax planning, and other considerations involved in the structuring and conduct of business ventures.
