Tackling international tax

Monday, June 13, 2022

In The Hamilton Project book “Tackling the Tax Code: Efficient and Equitable Ways to Raise Revenue,” released in 2020, leading economists and other experts offered detailed proposals for better tax policies including a proposal that would raise additional revenue from US multinational corporations in efficient, equitable ways. Those changes would bring the US system more in line with new consensus on international corporate tax policy that was developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development/G-20 Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting and agreed to by more than 130 countries late last year.

On Monday, June 13, 2022, The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution hosted a webcast to explore significant changes to the taxing of international corporate income. The webcast featured National Economic Council Director Brian Deese and Wendy Edelberg of The Hamilton Project.

The webcast also included a roundtable discussion with Kimberly Clausing (UCLA School of Law), Chye-Ching Huang (NYU Law), Rohit Kumar (PwC), and Jason Furman (Harvard University).

The webcast event coincided with the release of a new facts document by The Hamilton Project and the Tax Law Center of NYU, highlighting essential aspects of the international tax system that are ripe for reform.
