    Taxing the gig economy

    When: Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 9:30 a.m. — 12:15 p.m.

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    The rise of smartphones and platform technologies has created a surge of employment in what has been termed the ‘gig economy.’ Or has it? Statisticians and economists are debating and defining the size and scope of this workforce and its effect on the overall economy. The gig economy also raises questions about tax filing and tax compliance for participants (including platform providers) and for tax administrators.

    An Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center conference on Tuesday, October 23, will address what we know about the gig economy and consider ways the tax system should adapt. Panelists will take questions from the audience following their discussions.
