Sean Cronin, Executive Director of St. Vrain and Left Hand Water Conservancy District (CO);
Steve Ellis, Vice President of Taxpayers for Common Sense; and
Troy Lewis, Chair of the AICPA Tax Executive Committee (UT).
Two of the witnesses – Andy Berke and Robert Loughery – specifically mentioned the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit as an important tool in disaster recovery.
Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ-10) is one of the new co-sponsors on the disaster tax relief bills.
Enterprise Community Partners has submitted testimony on the importance of passing disaster tax relief legislation and they encourage others to submit their own testimony as well. It seems unlikely that disaster tax relief will become part of the current tax extenders package, but there is still clearly interest in this effort and it is a good opportunity to make our voices heard.
