Federal Legislative & Regulatory Services
The KPMG Federal Legislative & Regulatory Services practice gives clients immediate notification about breaking developments in tax legislation or federal tax regulations; provides insight and advice to clients in anticipation of possible legislative or regulatory changes and the impact of such changes on client tax planning; assists clients in the legislative and regulatory process; and conducts “roundtable” briefings and discussions.
