Pathways to Tax Reform Series: “Supplemental Expenditure Tax” (March 6, 12:30 PM)

On Wednesday, March 6th from 12:30 PM to 1:50 PM in Vanderbilt Hall Room 202, the Graduate Tax Program will continue its Pathways to Tax Reform Series, which began last week at the Law School’s Forum.

Victor Thuronyi, Senior Counsel at the International Monetary Fund, will present a proposal for a “Supplemental Expenditure Tax,” which would facilitate an overall tax reform package.  A copy of the paper is attached.  The Supplemental Expenditure Tax would be very similar to the current income tax, except that includable receipts would be defined more broadly, the tax would not apply until income is consumed and investment would generally be deductible.  In addition to describing the proposal, the program will compare the Supplemental Expenditure Tax to several consumption tax alternatives.  Professor Daniel Shaviro, the Wayne Perry Professor of Taxation at NYU School of Law, and David Miller, Partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, will provide commentary.

Please feel free to bring your lunch to this event.  To RSVP, please email Kevin Agnese at .  We hope you will join us for what should be an interesting and informative discussion.
