Rosanne Altshuler (Rutgers) delivers the annual Richard Crawford Pugh Lecture on Tax Law & Policy at San Diego today on The International Tax Landscape: Past, Present and Future:
The Tax Cut and Jobs Act made major changes to the system the United States uses to tax the cross-border income of U.S. corporations. Professor Altshuler will discuss what motivated the changes, what the landscape looks like today, and what we might we expect in future reforms.
