District Update |January 10, 2022                                                                                 

Dear Friend,

Happy Monday! I hope you had restful weekend.

I wanted to provide you with a brief update below of some recent noteworthy news and helpful dates for your own tax filing purposes in the new year.

Thank You To Our Law Enforcement Officers


Thousands of men and women throughout Arizona bravely serve our state as law enforcement officers. They put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe, and I am grateful for their selfless service. With yesterday marking Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, please join me in saying thank you to all of our law enforcement officers.

Dreadful December Jobs Report 

ImageOn Friday, the Department of Labor issued the December jobs report. It showed that the U.S. economy added less than half the jobs economists predicted. The Biden Administration needs to take this news as a wake up call and realize their big government approach to the economy is not working.

We must create an economic environment that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship, not one that is centered around massive government spending plans that disincentivize work.

Tax Season Opens January 24th
