Tax Simplification: What can the U.K. and U.S. learn from each other?
May 7, 2013 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm
The Technology Policy Institute and the Progressive Policy Institute will host a luncheon discussion on tax reform and simplification on May 7th from 11:45am to 1:15pm.
Whether from the left, right, or center, there is almost universal agreement among elected officials in Washington that the federal tax code is long overdue for an overhaul. In recent years, the calls for tax reform and the number of tax simplification proposals has multiplied. In the United Kingdom, elected officials have also been reviewing their tax system and ideas for improving it. The May 7th discussion will focus on what’s happening on tax reform on both sides of the Atlantic.
The event will feature the Honourable Ian Liddell-Grainger, MP and Chair of the All Party Taxation Group for Parliament in the United Kingdom, and Rep. Richard Neal. Participants will discuss the approaches to tax simplification taking place in the U.S. and the U.K.
“Tax Simplification: What can the U.K. and U.S. learn from each other?” will be held Tuesday, May 7th, 2013 from 11:45am to 1:15pm in Room SVC 209 of the Capitol Visitor Center. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:45am, with the discussion beginning at 12:00 noon.
