Hi and welcome to the Director’s corner.  We’re launching this re-vamped web site in support of the Intuit Tax and Financial Center.  In the coming months and years, we plan to use the site as a place to explore important ideas that can simplify the business of life.  We’ll look at issues that affect how people live their financial lives, hear from experts and policy makers, and support debates and discussions on important issues.  We’ll also link to resources that make complex issues clear and articulate the values to which our company aspires.  We’ll also welcome different points of view with an eye toward ensuring a healthy debate.

As you look through the site, you’ll notice there are areas still under construction.  This v.1 of what will be a constantly evolving web presence.  As such, we welcome your constructive comments and suggestions.

Finally, I’ve had the honor and privilege of working in tax policy and tax administration for nearly three decades.  Most of that time has been in the public sector – a place where, despite the sometimes negative connotation, you get a real opportunity contribute to making a difference in the lives of ordinary people.  I hope my experience will inform and enhance the Intuit Tax and Financial Center.
