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-Texas), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee – and convene panels of leading economists and journalists.
After each session, speakers will take questions from the audience. This event will be live webcast. Join the conversation on Twitter at #TaxPolicy2016.
