ATPI & Rice University Host Conference Today on International Tax Reform

The American Tax Policy Institute and Rice University's Baker Institute host a conference today on Reforming the U.S. System for Taxing International Income in Washington, D.C.:

The President and Members of Congress have called for reforms of our international tax system. Some view the system as broken and in need of fundamental reform. Others advocate incremental changes. Join us for a lively and informative discussion of a new set of papers from experts in law, economics and accounting addressing problems with the U.S. international tax system and analyzing the economic advantages and practical problems of moving to new systems for taxing the profits U.S. firms earn abroad.
