NAWPresidentDirk Van Dongenis leading the fight to renew Bush-era tax cuts before they expire in 2011. Van
Dongen is managing lobbyists for the
Tax Relief Coalition, a group comprising more than 1,000 companies and trade
groups. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a co-manager, along with five other
leading groups in the business community including the National Association of
Wholesaler-Distributors and the National Association of Manufacturers.
The group is opposing President Obama’s
proposal to discontinue tax cuts for the highest-earning Americans. "This
has to be a discussion about job creation," Van Dongen said, adding that
small businesses would be hit the hardest if tax cuts aren't extended. Van
Dongen was instrumental in helping craft the first round of tax relief with
President George W. Bush in 2000.
