Dana Trier (Davis Polk) delivered the 2019 Frank & Rose Fogel Lecture at Temple yesterday on Entity Taxation in the 2017 Legislation: Process and Policy:
The 2017 tax legislation was shaped not only by the policy objectives that animated it but also by the unusual process that produced it. As Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy in the U.S. Treasury, Mr. Trier participated in the production of that legislation and will offer his thoughts on the forces that shaped the tax law that we have today, focusing on specific provisions, such as the so-called “pass-through deduction” that has dramatically changed the taxation of some personal service income. Mr. Trier has now returned to private practice and is Counsel at Davis Polk and Wardwell in New York City.
