USC Gould School of Law hosted a discussion, “Tax Reform: Perspectives From Across the Nation” on Oct. 25, featuring experts with Tax Analysts, the American Bar Foundation and USC.

 

The speakers  – Edward Kleinbard of USC Gould; Sam Melehani, Southwest SALT Tax Leader; and Lee Sheppard of Tax Notes - analyzed an effort by the U.S. Congress to implement fundamental tax reform. The experts looked at consequences for the global economy, including new risks and opportunities.

 

The USC event was one of several symposiums held across the country by Tax Analysts and the American Bar Foundation. The goal is to gain a variety of perspectives on tax reform from every section of the nation.

 

“In general people love tax reform but they are skeptical whether they will benefit from it,” said Joseph J. Thorndike, director of the Tax History Project and Contributor. One poll shows that “80 percent of Americans believe corporations aren’t paying their fair share.”
