Washington DC – Americans Standing for the Simplification of the Estate Tax welcomes newest member Jordan Silverman to the team this month. A senior at the University of Maryland, Jordan previously worked in government relations for Adventist Healthcare. After the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Jordan worked to compile extensive research on a wide range of topics involving healthcare laws and regulations, and healthcare trade associations.
Jordan also has experience in Lean Six Sigma training. Jordan’s previous experience includes work with the Points of Light. Points of Light were formed in 2007 by the merger of the Points of Light Foundation and Hands on Network. The Points of Light Foundation was created in 1990 as a nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C. to promote the spirit of volunteerism described by U.S. President George H. W. Bush in his 1989 inaugural address.
“Jordan brings creativity and energy to ASSET and we’re glad to bring his skill set as we prepare for a year of potential reform with taxes, including the estate tax” said Rob Smith, President of ASSET.
Americans Standing for the Simplification of the Estate Tax (ASSET) is a coalition that brings together private businesses, family farms, ranchers and individuals who have been advocating for a change to the collection method for the Estate Tax. Members of ASSET believe that so long as the IRS requires the estate tax be paid, there is a simpler collection method that allows the same cash flow to the treasury without costing jobs or forcing the sale or closure of businesses and farms.
ASSET is working with think tanks, elected officials and thought leaders on Capitol Hill to bring about an option for the estate tax that will change the dialogue and provide fairness and permanent relief to the estate tax.
