Washington, D.C. — Congressional gridlock and election-year politicking appear to have stalled efforts to reform the tax code. But politics aside, there is actually substantial agreement among progressive and conservative policymakers on how to improve the tax code. On September 23, the Center for American Progress will unveil a new report that identifies common principles of good tax policy that leaders on the right and left support, as well as more than 20 specific bipartisan tax reform proposals worth more than $1 trillion over a decade.
Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, along with Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum, will discuss areas of tax policy where consensus is within reach on a panel moderated by Eric Toder, Co-director of the Tax Policy Center. Marc Jarsulic, Vice President for Economic Policy at CAP, will deliver opening remarks. Using CAP’s report as a starting point, this event will convene tax and economic policy experts from diverse perspectives to discuss how to improve our tax code in a bipartisan manner.
Members of the media can RSVP here.
