The Federal Income Tax at 100: Capitol Hill Event Looks at What's Next

8/30/2013 --

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The federal income tax turned 100 this year. How did we get here, and where should we go next?

The Office of Tax Policy Research at the University of Michiganís Ross School of Business is hosting an open, day-long event on Sept. 10 in Washington, D.C., to explore the justification for tax reform and the pros and cons of the leading options. The event is co-sponsored by the National Tax Association and the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.

At the event, results from a survey of members of the National Tax Association and a separate survey of the general public regarding tax policy will be revealed. Those results will be compared with an earlier survey of tax policy experts.

U-M Ross Professor Joel Slemrod, director of the Office of Tax Policy Research and author of several books on tax policy, will be joined by Len Burman, director of the Tax Policy Center, and Diane Lim, director of the National Tax Association, as hosts and conference participants.

U.S. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee and a member sponsor of the event, will speak during the luncheon.

The event will be held from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.
