Villanova Tax Symposium

Tax Reform in 2017 – Exploring the Blueprint


The 2016 Presidential campaign generated renewed interest in the need for Comprehensive Tax Reform. The President and Congress have indicated their desire to propose and pass comprehensive tax reform before the end of this year. The 2017 Villanova University Graduate Tax Program Tax Policy Symposium will explore the Blueprint for Reform that began the process, and discuss additional plans that have been proposed.

This event will bring together a cross section of business leaders - from tax and accounting to legal and government to renowned academics - to discuss the economic and tax policy issues surrounding the current tax reform proposals, as well as their economic impact.

Scheduled topics for discussion include:

  • A view from the House Ways and Means Committee
  • The impact on individual and corporate taxpayers - an overview of the proposals
  • The border adjustment tax and how it will impact multinational corporations and businesses
  • The impact on the real estate industry and other businesses that operate as partnerships
  • The road to tax reform - How it can be accomplished

The symposium will take place on Thursday, June 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law (299 North Spring Mill Road, Villanova, PA). A networking breakfast and lunch will be provided. This program is approved for 4.5 substantive CLE credits by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board and for 4.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) tax credits for Certified Public Accountants.
