"Tax Reform in Today's Fiscal Environment: Principles to Guide the Debate"
With the Bush/Obama tax cuts expiring at the end of 2012, the automatic spending cuts scheduled to start in January 2013 and the need to increase the debt ceiling by January 2013, fiscal and tax policies are expected to be a prominent topic in the coming year. To guide the debate and to inform the public, some tax policy principles are necessary. Honoree and keynote speaker Leslie B. Samuels will outline these principles and discuss the challenges in arriving at a consensus for a reformed tax system.
