NMMA survey seeks input on tax policy

To help the NMMA get a better understanding, the group has put together a brief anonymous survey.

On the heels of this month’s surprising presidential election, policymakers and experts agree on one thing — the U.S. tax code is poised to be opened up and reformed.

With Republicans controlling Congress and the White House, comprehensive corporate tax reform could be on the table during the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency.

With that in mind, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said it wants to ensure that recreational boating interests are represented, advocated for and protected in any tax policy debate. To accomplish this, the NMMA team in Washington said it wants to know what tax policies industry members want to protect, change and/or eliminate.

To help the NMMA get a better understanding, the group has put together a brief anonymous survey.

Although participation is voluntary, the NMMA is “strongly recommending” participation so the group’s tax experts have knowledge of the policy implications affecting businesses and the industry. The NMMA recommends that the survey be completed by a qualified employee or outside consultant familiar with the business and its tax obligation.

The NMMA said responses are strictly “blind” — neither the NMMA nor any other affiliated organization will have access to identifiable or confidential information.

The deadline to complete the survey is Jan. 13.
