Tax Policy Center Hosts Program Today On Tax Policy In 2016

Tax Policy Center (2015)The Tax Policy Center hosts a program today on Tax Policy in 2016: What’s New and What’s Next at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. from 8:45 am - 12:00 pm EST:

Tax policy has returned to its traditional place of prominence in policy circles, with leading presidential candidates proposing both sweeping and incremental reforms. Members of Congress are considering a wide variety of changes as well. How will tax policy shape up as the year progresses? What role will tax policy play in the election? Are we situated for a major reform in 2017? What are the implications for the economy and the American people?

To address these issues, on February 25, the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center will host two keynote speakers – Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee – and convene panels of leading economists and journalists.
