Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) and the International Tax Policy Forum (ITPF) were pleased to host March 11th’s high-profile conference examining the taxation of intellectual property in a global economy.

Featuring Keynote Remarks by Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers

The United States now lags behind its global competitors in tax incentives for research and development. In recent years, at least fourteen developed economies have adopted patent or innovation boxes, which provide a special low tax rate on business income that is derived from innovative activities. This development has sparked debate in the United States, and several recent U.S. tax reform proposals include a patent or innovation box. A discussion draft for a U.S. innovation box was released last year by Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) and Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA).

This conference brought together experts from a variety of backgrounds to share their perspectives on these important emerging issues in tax policy. A series of panels explored the taxation of innovative activity in the United States and abroad, the resulting economic effects, the impact of patent and innovation boxes, and what action the United States should take. Jason Furman, the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, delivered the keynote address.
