The President’s Tax Reform Panel will soon issue its final report to the Treasury Department. While final details are still to be worked out, the panel has already presented blueprints for reform. Are more tax changes on the way?
Can a comprehensive overhaul be achieved, or will we see more of the same policies of the past five years? How has tax policy changed and where is it headed? What are the merits of the tax reform panel’s proposals? Does the American public have an appetite for major tax reform? Will tax reform move to the forefront of Congress’s legislative agenda, or again be relegated to the back burner?
Join us as a panel of experts grapple with these questions and more.
