Share The Economic Effects of Corporate Rate Reductions

Event Details

An often mentioned element in discussions of changes to federal tax policy is that corporate tax rates will be substantially reduced, with other changes made to the tax code to offset the revenue effects.  This conference will explore the implications of such a policy in a variety of areas that are often not well understood.

This morning conference will provide an overview of four aspects of business taxation directly, or indirectly, affected by changes in the corporate tax rate.  The goal of this program is to help those either involved or interested in the current tax reform debate better understand the complexity of the system and the potential economic effects of a change in the rate structure. Hosted by The American Tax Policy Institute and the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.
