Tax policy can be one of the most challenging areas for government affairs executives. In the wake of significant changes in the economy and federal tax laws, state and local tax policy has become a top priority for large businesses and trade associations. MultiState’s team understands the issues, knows the key players, and can help you effectively navigate and engage.
MultiState offers a customized, strategic solution to meet your needs and can provide an early warning system to ensure you’re positioned for long-term success. We work with you to develop and execute a proactive multistate tax legislative agenda, provide guidance for your tax and government affairs teams, and create and refine advocacy collateral to support your efforts.
Led by MultiState Chairman and CEO Joe Crosby, a nationally renowned state and local tax policy expert, our tax policy team consists of lawyers, economists, accountants, and tax policy experts who partner with our network of over 2,000 lobbyists strategically located throughout the United States.
Every client receives legislative tracking services and support. A MultiState expert will become your dedicated analyst, and you’ll receive regular and timely updates on newly introduced, moving, and enrolled legislation related to your key tax issues.
MultiState can help you understand and analyze the legislation and policy that impacts your organization. Our team can provide assistance communicating policy impacts to your internal stakeholders, such as your executive team or members. We can also help navigate media inquiries related to your tax policy priorities.
MultiState can support your efforts to communicate your organization’s tax policy priorities externally. For example, we can create advocacy collateral such as lobbying leave-behinds, letters to lawmakers, presentation slides, legislative testimony, talking points, and position statements. We can support your direct public policy advocacy by writing white papers or media pieces, speaking at public policy conferences, testifying in state legislatures, or engaging with public policy groups. Or, if you need a more comprehensive solution, we can design and execute a full advocacy campaign to advance your tax policy priorities.
Before we can create an action plan, we need a thorough understanding of what you’re facing. What’s impacting you and how? What’s your objective? Understanding what success looks like to you is vital to getting you there.
Our people are your strategic advantage. MultiState’s industry veterans have decades of tax policy and government affairs experience and can help you navigate it all. Our communications and policy professionals have a proven record of crafting advocacy content that changes minds, and our network will get your message in front of the right people.
MultiState has a proven set of advocacy tools that we’ve deployed working with hundreds of clients over the years, tools we constantly iterate and refine. We’ll use our network of on-the-ground experts in states and localities across the country, and combine it with our in-house policy expertise, modern government relations management technology, and cutting-edge communications and compliance tools to give you a comprehensive, tailored program.
Influencing state and local policy across the country can be a daunting prospect. But it doesn’t have to be. Our comprehensive approach to government affairs — decades of experience combined with modern tools and policy expertise — will get you the results you’re looking for and put your mind at ease.
