Lunch will be served
The Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) and Technology Policy Institute (TPI) invite you to a Capitol Hill luncheon event entitled, “Tax Reform and Lessons from the United Kingdom.”
Our guest speaker will be the Honorable Ian Liddell-Grainger, UK Member of Parliament and Chair of the All-Party Taxation Group. Mr. Grainger will discuss an upcoming paper he authored on Great Britain’s experience with auto-file tax returns (Pay-As-You-Earn). He will specifically address how the goal of providing automated tax returns and lowering error rates and inaccurate payments may be mutually exclusive in an age where more and more individuals are self-employed, work more than one job, have two earner incomes, and/or have significantly more complex family lives and structures than when PAYE was originally envisioned and implemented.
Joining Mr. Liddell-Grainger will be: J. Anthony Coughlan, Senior Tax Counsel, U.S. Senate Finance Committee, Republican Staff; Arlene Holen of the Technology Policy Institute; and Paul Weinstein Jr. of the Progressive Policy Institute.
