Description

Should They Stay or Should They Go? Reexamining Retirement Tax Incentives

Do tax incentives raise retirement savings? Are they carefully targeted at the families who need them most?

Join us for a lunchtime panel discussion on the effectiveness of current tax incentives to encourage saving for retirement – a timely topic given growing momentum in Congress to overhaul the tax code. In addition to debating the efficacy of retirement tax incentives, the conversation will cover the upside-down nature of current retirement tax expenditures, the potential role of the Saver’s Credit to boost savings for low- and moderate-income families, the possibility for consolidation and simplification of the various savings incentives in the code, and other reform proposals.

Panelists:

  • Peter J. Brady, Senior Economist at the Investment Company Institute (ICI)
  • Catherine Collinson, President of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies
  • David Kamin, Professor of Law at New York University and author of new paper entitled “Getting Americans to Save: In Defense of (Reformed) Tax Incentives”
  • Monique Morrissey, Economist, Economic Policy Institute
  • Moderated by Ray Suarez
