Featuring Keynote Remarks by Kevin Brady, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee
Join Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) and the International Tax Policy Forum (ITPF) on February 3rd for a high-profile conference examining international tax competition as the United States stands on the brink of business tax reform.
Unlike the United States―which currently has the highest statutory corporate tax rate in the developed world―other countries have been lowering corporate tax rates and increasing reliance on consumption taxes. Recently, various multilateral and unilateral efforts to limit income tax competition have reshaped the international tax landscape. In response to these developments, the United States is now considering major tax reforms to restore American competitiveness, such as the destination-based cash flow tax proposed in the House Republican Blueprint.
This conference brings together experts from a variety of backgrounds to share their views on international tax competition and U.S. tax policy. A series of panels will consider the global trend towards consumption taxation, how recent efforts to curtail income tax avoidance interact with tax competition, and the economic effects of international tax competition. The closing panel will consider how the United States should respond.
Kevin Brady, the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, will deliver the keynote address.
