How's the view from the upcoming fiscal cliff? I found a good summary of what could happen if tax hikes go through on January 1 from the North American Die Casting Association. The possibility of the expiration of tax policies enacted in 2001 and 2003 will affect businesses in many ways. Will companies hire new employees? Make new investments? NADCA is asking its members for examples so they can let lawmakers know the potential affect of the tax change. Meanwhile, legislation is expected to be introduced in the House of Representatives that will extend the reduced tax rates.
