DESCRIPTION

Join us for this ENCORE session recorded from the recent Bloomberg BNA post-election conference at the National Press Club sponsored by KPMG LLP -- After the Election: Tax Overhaul for 2017? A Competitive Imperative for American Business.

The direction of tax policy will be highly influenced by this year’s election outcomes. The key players; Brady, Hatch, Wyden, Levin, Ryan, and Schumer all have differing views on how tax reform should proceed in 2017; corporate integration, border adjustable rates, ending deferral, repatriation, earnings stripping are all in play. Hear from the top Congressional tax writers as they react to the election results and the Congressional agenda ahead.

Educational Objectives:
• Be among the first to hear how leading Republicans and Democrat tax counsels from two of Congresses’ most powerful committees see the path to tax reform in 2017
• Recognize global dynamics such as State Aid Cases and President-Elect Trump’s call for repatriation and understand how they may also impact the road to reform
