ACCA Board Member Serves on Congressional Tax Reform Roundtable

October 24, 2017

Arlington, VA  – The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has announced that Brian Stack of Stack Heating, Cooling and Electric in Avon, Ohio will serve on Congressman Bob Gibbs’s (OH-7) small business tax reform roundtable.

The roundtable will take place on Friday, October 27 at the Lorain County Community College in North Ridgeville, Ohio. It will feature small business owners from Congressman Gibbs’s congressional district. Congressman Gibbs invited Brian to serve on the tax reform roundtable after meeting with him during ACCA’s Board of Directors' Capitol Hill Day on October 12, 2017.

“It is great to represent ACCA and America’s HVAC contractors on Congressman Gibbs’s tax reform roundtable,” said Stack. “As a small business owner, I am excited to work with Congressman Gibbs and share ideas for tax reform that will help America’s small businesses grow. It is very important that HVAC contractors are engaged in these policy discussions and taking action to support the contracting industry. If we are not speaking up to support our industry then Congress will not fully understand the great impact that we have on the American economy.”

Congressman Gibbs said, “It is a pleasure to have Brian Stack of Stack Heating and Cooling participate in my small business tax reform roundtable discussion. Brian recently visited my office in Washington D.C. to discuss tax reform and how these issues are going to affect his heating and air conditioning business. Contractors like Brian employ countless Ohioans who work hard to support their family. As Congress continues working on tax reform, it is my goal to help small business like his get the relief from our current tax system they need.”

ACCA’s Board of Directors recently met with their elected officials in Washington, D.C and hosted a congressional briefing, HVAC 101 for Congress, to help Members of Congress and their staff understand that high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) products are only delivering a fraction of their efficiency. One of ACCA’s top goals is to educate Members of Congress about tax incentives that promote high-efficiency HVAC products, but fail to incorporate the design and installation requirements needed to ensure these products operate efficiently. Failure to follow the proper design and installation procedures causes equipment to operate at 60-70 percent of its labeled efficiency.
