The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 introduced two new taxes on US corporations. The first is a minimum tax on the reported financial income of large US corporations. The second is an excise tax on repurchases of shares by US corporations, a tax that President Biden’s fiscal year 2024 budget proposes to increase. While the US Congress was considering options to raise more revenue from corporations, more than 140 countries in the OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project reached a landmark agreement on international tax reform.
Join the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the University of North Carolina Tax Center for an event to discuss these developments. Two expert panels will assess the effects of proposals to use corporate financial income as a tax base and to impose an additional tax on corporate share repurchases. The keynote speaker Itai Grinberg, former deputy assistant secretary for multilateral negotiations at the US Treasury Department, will discuss the new global tax agreement for multinational corporation taxation reform.
