Georgetown Symposium: Reimagining Taxation In The Age Of Digital Disruption

Georgetown (2016)Georgetown hosts a symposium today on The Digital Economy: Reimagining Taxation in the Age of Digital Disruption:

A growing number of countries are proposing digital services taxes that would impact big U.S. companies – such as Amazon, Apple and Facebook – and some U.S. leaders are pushing back. This one-day symposium will explore and contextualize a raging debate over whether digital companies are somehow different and outside the norms of international tax law. Should international tax rules be reformed in a digitized economy? Are digital taxes the next trade barrier? How might Blockchain, AI and other evolving tech impact taxation and compliance? Experts from industry and academia along with government officials from several countries will explore these and other questions. U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Treasury Chip Harter will deliver keynote remarks.

Tax Prof participants include:

  • Lilian Faulhaber (Georgetown)
  • Itai Grinberg (Georgetown)
  • Jeffrey Owens (Vienna)
  • Julie Roin (Chicago)
  • Alexander Rust (Vienna)
