TPC Hosts Program Today on The Charitable Deduction

Tax Policy Center LogoThe Tax Policy Center hosts a program today on The Charitable Deduction: A View from the Other Side of the Cliff (free webcast here):

As the vehicle of state leaned over one fiscal cliff, Congress pulled it back but kept the motor running. In this session, we will examine the recent debate over tax changes, the resulting effect on charities, and the likely forthcoming debate in early 2013. Panelists will discuss how federal fiscal policy and proposed changes to tax law, in particular the charitable deduction, may affect charitable giving and the political scene for nonprofits going forward into an uncertain future.

Looking Back at the Cliff
This panel will take a look back at the debate leading up to the “fiscal cliff.” The panelists will discuss the various proposals that would have affected the charitable deduction, the response of the nonprofit sector, and the effect of the ultimate deal that was reached. 

      Moderator: Eugene Steuerle, Urban Institute
          Diana Aviv, Independent Sector
          Jon Bakija, Williams College
          Rick Cohen, Nonprofit Quarterly 
          Joseph Rosenberg, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center

The Road Forward
This panel will discuss what lies ahead for the charitable deduction in an environment of continued budget pressure. The speakers will describe various proposed reforms to the charitable deduction and discuss how these reforms may affect nonprofits, for better or for worse. 

      Moderator: Elizabeth Boris, Urban Institute
          Joseph Cordes, George Washington University 
          Tim Delaney, National Council of Nonprofits
          Brian Flahaven, Council for Advancement and Support of Education
