Tax policy in 2016: What’s new and what’s next

Tax policy has returned to its traditional place of prominence in policy circles, with leading presidential candidates proposing both sweeping and incremental reforms. Members of Congress are considering a wide variety of changes as well. How will tax policy shape up as the year progresses? What role will tax policy play in the election? Are we situated for a major reform in 2017? What are the implications for the economy and the American people?

To address these issues, on February 25, the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center hosted two keynote speakers – Representative Kevin Brady (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee – and convened panels of leading economists and journalists.

Join the conversation on Twitter at #TaxPolicy2016.
