Jim Ramstad joins Houston-based tax firm
Former Congressman Jim Ramstad (R-MN) has taken on a new role as a taxman. His new job at Houston-based alliantgroup will be helping companies take advantage of tax breaks.
In its announcement today, the firm touted Ramstad's deep experience in tax maters -- he was a member of the influential House Ways and Means Committee, which writes taxes, and chairman of the IRS Oversight Committee.
Ramstad also knows his way around D.C.: After serving nearly a decade in the Minnesota State Senate, he served almost two decades in the U.S. House of Representatives.
He retired in 2009. Since then, Ramstad has been a resident fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and most recently, a senior policy consultant at Hazelden, a position he retains.
