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.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • The Honourable Ian Liddell-Grainger, MP and Chair of the All Party Taxation Group for Parliament in the United Kingdom
  • Representative Richard Neal (D-MA), U.S. House of Representatives
  • Former Senator Bob Kerrey, Client Project Leader, Carmen Group
  • Rudolph Penner, Former Director, Congressional Budget Office and Institute Fellow, Urban Institute
  • Arlene Holen (moderator), Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute
  • Paul Weinstein (moderator), Senior Fellow, Progressive Policy Institute

“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. Please plan to arrive early to allow time for security screening and notify officers that you are there for an event. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:45am, with the discussion beginning at 12:00 noon.
