Republican floats tax plan

Nunes, who is a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee, is proposing to replace the 35 percent corporate tax rate with a 25 percent levy on cash flow, a measure of funds typically available after expenses, financing, and investment.

A Student’s Perspective – Advice on How to Write That Perfect Cover Letter

Writing that perfect cover letter for the course aux stages is one of the most important tools at your disposal. It is a self-portrait all the while acting as your reel. It contains invaluable information, which is typically not exemplified by one’s curriculum vitae. An anecdote or an achievement, in any event the main question remains: how do you attract the reader(s)? I believe the acronym “PREP”, which is required in many ways while writing this letter, is in my most humble opinion the best way of summing up this process.

In this regard, there should not be any spelling and grammatical mistakes. This simple step is where one’s willingness to meet you begins.
