What does the 2016 Presidential Election mean to you, your business, and your family?

Every presidential candidate enters into the race with their own proposed plan for the nation. Whether their focus is on the economy, homeland security or healthcare, there is usually an underlying tax implication that affects us as individuals, business owners or investors.

Although you can learn a lot from the media about what is happening in the 2016 Presidential Election, a great place to learn about the tax policies being proposed by each nominee is on their website. You can use the following links to view their proposals on tax and business reform, as well as other areas of their campaigns.

Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump

It is our right to vote and our responsibility to be educated voters. We owe it to our forefathers, ourselves and the generations to come. An educated voter is aware of what each candidate stands for and how their proposed policies will affect the nation as a whole.

If you still have questions after visiting each candidate’s website, feel free to visit their local campaign offices. Each candidate typically has a campaign office in every major city where representatives are available to answer your questions.

Find your local campaign office by going to the nominee’s website, and selecting the section for volunteers or via Facebook.
