The Technology Policy Institute and the Progressive Policy Institute will host a luncheon discussion on tax reform on June 18th from 1:30pm to 3:00pm.
Tax reform is on the legislative agenda in the United States and abroad. But too often reform proposals miss the mark. Join the Technology Policy Institute (TPI) and the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) for a discussion of the benefits of, and political obstacles to tax reform in the U.S., particularly as they pertain to small business, and what we can learn from the United Kingdom.
The event will feature the Honourable Ian Liddell-Grainger, MP and Chair of the All Party Taxation Group for Parliament in the United Kingdom, and Representative Kurt Schrader.
