Johnson Presents The Shelf Project: Revenue Raising Proposals to Defend the Tax Base at San Diego

Johnson (Calvin)Calvin H. Johnson (Texas) presented The Shelf Project: Revenue Raising Proposals to Defend the Tax Base at San Diego yesterday as part of its Tax Law Speaker Series:

The Shelf Project is a coalition of tax professionals to develop proposals that will raise revenue, when Congress is ready, by improving the fairness and efficiency fo the income tax.  We have published 69 projects over the last 5 years, some big and some with modest revenue impact.   To do the least damage to the private sector per dollar of revenue raised, the tax base needs to broad and firm.  Tax avoided is a lose-lose proposition.  It neither pays for the Marine or closes the deficit and taxpayers do themselves damage in avoidign the tax.  Shelf projects attack departures from tax on pretax internal rate of return.
