Snow Women hosts an afternoon event with Utah House Representative Stephanie Pitcher

The Firm’s Snow Women hosted an afternoon event in its Salt Lake City Office on Thursday, June 6, titled “A Conversation with Utah House Representative Stephanie Pitcher.”

The event centered around HB 441, the Tax Equalization and Reduction Act. The discussion covered a number of topics including updating and balancing Utah’s tax policy, tax issues in a service economy, fairness and flexibility for business-to-business transactions, and the future of HB 441.  Representative Pitcher also answered questions from local business leaders regarding the effects of the legislation.

Snow Women would like to extend our thanks to Representative Pitcher for her time and efforts in educating us and our guests on the proposed changes!
