In the third event of the Talking Tax Reform series, the Tax Foundation hosted a special panel, sponsored by the Intuit Tax & Financial Center, on how we might craft business tax policies that don’t act as barriers to entrepreneurship.
Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge moderated the panel of four of today’s leading experts:
- Scott Greenberg, Director of Federal Projects, Tax Foundation
- Tom Nichols, Meissner Tierney Fisher & Nichols S.C.
- Tim Kane, Fellow, Hoover Institution
- Donald Marron, Director of Economic Policy Initiatives, Urban Institute
Each panelist spoke in turn, offering perspectives on the current state of play and how the tax code affects entrepreneurship. Greenberg began with an overview of three tax ares that are barriers to entrepreneurs. Nichols offered insights on what obstacles businesses face from a practitioner perspective. Kane spoke on the role that government plays in fostering growth in entrepreneurship. And to wrap-up the panel, Marron commented on how the tax code creates an uneven playing field for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Following the remarks, the panelist addressed questions from the audience on Capitol Hill.
