Tax and Regulatory Affairs Committee



The purpose of the Committee is to undertake a proactive legislative and regulatory advocacy program in the areas of tax, finance, employment policy, and other regulatory areas on behalf of ACEC member firms.


2020-2021 GOALS:

  1. Identify and analyze tax, finance, and employment-related legislative and regulatory issues of concern to A/E firms; confer with ACEC members to determine the Council’s position; and make appropriate recommendations to policy makers and regulatory authorities.
  2. Advance priority legislative issues, including tax extenders, preservation of cash accounting for A/E firms, S corporation reforms, promotion of ESOPs, changes to the health care reform law, and liability reform.
  3. Advocate the interests of ACEC member firms with the Department of Treasury, the IRS, the Department of Labor, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, and other agencies as appropriate, on issues including implementation of the tax reform law, revisions to DOL’s overtime pay rule, ongoing implementation of the SEC’s proposed municipal advisor registration rule, and implementation of new accounting standards.
  4. Work with Congress and other ACEC Committees to develop reform solutions that would reduce the regulatory burdens imposed on engineering firms by the federal government.
  5. Maintain strong liaison with ACEC’s Finance Forum, HR Forum, Legal Counsel Forum, and CFO Council.
