How Will New International Tax Policies Affect the U.S.?

Monday, November 2, 2015

Washington, D.C. – Much attention has been paid this year to international tax reform. Policymakers are now analyzing the new Base Erosion and Profit Sharing (BEPS) plan issued by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an agreement that will significantly impact the tax planning strategies of multinational companies.

On Nov. 10, the Bipartisan Policy Center will host Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, and a panel of experts to discuss key tax issues, including: what the BEPS agreement will mean for U.S. companies; the prospects for international and comprehensive tax reforms in a new administration; and how the tax code can more effectively drive growth.

The event is open to the public and press.
