Today at 11:00am ET: Increasing Competition and Fairness in Food and Agricultural Markets

RSVP to join the livestream


The Center for American Progress is pleased to host a full-day conference with academic and policy experts from around the country who will highlight options for reforming the tax code. Many experts agree that the tax code is in need of repair. Yet it has been 20 years since the landmark 1986 reform. Given the growing complexity of the tax code, increased revenue pressures, and a changing economy; tax reform will likely be a central issue for 2006 and beyond. This conference will provide a forum for sharing proposals—both quick fixes and broad overhaul—and for open and engaged discussion.
