Framework for Considering Tax Reform

Eric Solomon, Ernst & Young

Over the last several years, there has been much discussion about reforming the U.S. tax system. "Framework for Considering Tax Reform" will address 10 key topics in tax reform: the scope of reform, who should pay, revenue neutrality, economic growth, individual income tax, business tax, use of the code for nontax purposes, global issues, alternative tax systems and transition.

Eric Solomon is an outstanding practitioner and public servant who has made lasting contributions to tax policy as Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy and IRS Assistant Chief Counsel (Corporate). In September 2009, he rejoined the national tax practice of the international accounting firm of Ernst & Young in its Washington, D.C. office. He received his A.B. from Princeton University, J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, and his LL.M.(Taxation) from New York University.
