The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made sweeping changes to the tax code and left many questions in its wake about how its changes will be implemented. What complexities does the new law create for tax administration and compliance? What guidance from the Treasury Department needs to be prioritized to provide certainty to taxpayers? How will the new pass-through provisions affect taxpayer behavior and limit opportunities to minimize tax liability?
On Monday, April 9, the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center will bring together tax administration experts, economists, and practitioners for the 3rd annual Donald C. Lubick Symposium to discuss these questions and more.

The Tax Policy Center established the Donald C. Lubick Symposium Series in 2016 to honor Don’s extraordinary record in promoting better tax policy founded on the principles of efficiency, equity, and simplicity. The Tax Policy Center places a premium on clear, engaging, and accessible analysis of current and emerging policy issues. Funding supports an annual public event to be held every spring around Tax Day that addresses key current issues in tax policy and tax administration.
