The American Action Forum and the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center Cordially Invite You to Attend
Looking at Tax Expenditures
Tuesday, August 2, 2011
Noon to 1:30p.m., ET
Though Republicans and Democrats disagree on many issues, both can agree that the U.S. tax code desperately needs a major structural reform. That reform would center on "tax expenditures" - the many credits, deductions, exclusions, and preferential rates that complicate our tax system.
To reform our broken tax code, we must understand this critical element. What are tax expenditures? What is the future economic impact if we modify tax expenditures? For answers, please join us for a lunch panel with several top U.S. economists who are defining the debate on both sides of the aisle today.
Ike Brannon, Director of Economic Policy, American Action Forum
Donald Marron, Director, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center
Len Burman, Director Emeritus, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.
At 1539 Longworth House Office Building, Washington, D.C.
Lunch will be provided at 11:45 a.m.. The forum begins promptly at noon.
