“Taxes affect everyone – manufactures, retailers, restaurants, farms and businesses of all sizes, their employees, their children and grandchildren, and, more importantly, their very legacy,” said the Founder, President and Chairman of Policy and Taxation Group, Patricia M. Soldano. “Our work is to inform and educate legislators and staff, as well as, the executive branch and agencies about the destructive nature of established and proposed tax policies: the jobs that are eliminated, family livelihood lost, and the negative community impact.  We are honored to have Jeff Michael and Angela B. Simmons join our efforts.”
