This webinar will review Vice President Biden’s corporate tax proposals, including proposed domestic and international changes and a proposal for an excess tax on book income.
The discussion will consider the likelihood and timing for enacting any of these proposals, interaction with other aspects of the Biden campaign’s agenda, the potential impact on markets, and different industries. To better understand the proposals, the webinar presenters will look at prior proposals (from both Democrats & Republicans) to see where the Biden campaign proposals originated.
The session will also consider the broader context in which these proposals may be considered, including the latest developments in the OECD.
