Stocks in this article: INTU

The American Tax & Financial Center at TurboTax today announced the establishment of an Advisory Committee to assist in guiding the center’s ongoing commitment to improving the financial capability of Americans.

The Tax Center draws on the expertise of thought leaders in economics, taxes, healthcare and consumer finance who share one common trait: empower people with the knowledge needed to make effective financial decisions that improve their lives and the lives of their family.

The advisory committee is a select group of independent experts who will provide objective advice on a broad range of consumer tax and financial issues and emerging trends with a focus on the real-world implications of taxes and personal finances for the average American.

“We are honored to have a very respected and distinguished group to serve as charter members of our advisory committee,” said Bernie McKay, executive director of the American Tax & Financial Center at TurboTax. “These individuals join our own tax experts to educate and advocate for individuals and offer insights to policymakers and tax administrators on the practical impacts of the U.S. tax system on the experience of American taxpayers.”

The newly appointed committee members include experts in economics, health care, technology innovation, personal finance and tax-time savings:

Dr. Robert Atkinson, President and Founder, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation

Dr. Robert D. Atkinson is one of the country’s foremost thinkers on innovation economics. An economic advisor to three U.S. administrations,. Atkinson was first appointed by President Clinton to the Commission on Workers, Communities, and Economic Change in the New Economy. Before he founded the ITIF, Atkinson was vice president of the Progressive Policy Institute and director of PPI’s Technology & New Economy Project. He has conducted groundbreaking research on technology innovation policy and the economics of jobs formation and growth. Atkinson is a valued adviser to state and national policy makers, and a popular published author and speaker nationally and internationally.
