The awards will be presented during the Tax Foundation’s 79th Anniversary Dinner and Gala on Thursday, November 17, 2016, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR)

Senate Finance Committee ranking member Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon will be presented the Distinguished Service Award for his unwavering efforts to build bipartisan consensus to reform the nation’s tax code as ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee. His passion and energy to push for tax reform no doubt will spur the new president and Congress to action in 2017.

Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX)

House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady of Texas will be presented the Distinguished Service Award for successfully crafting the House GOP Blueprint Tax Reform plan as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. The Blueprint will be the catalyst for a bipartisan dialogue that we believe can push tax reform over the finish line in 2017.

Janice Mays, former Democratic staffer for the House Ways and Means Committee and recently named managing director at PricewaterhouseCoopers in its Washington national tax services tax policy services group, will be presented the Distinguished Service Award for her tireless work serving the interests of American taxpayers for more than four decades as one of the most trusted tax experts on Capitol Hill.
