Talking Tax is an ongoing video series of brief conversations with experts in tax policy and tax administration.

Over the course of the series, we’ll provide a balance of viewpoints from soliciting comments from experts with diverse experiences and backgrounds. We look forward to a robust and thoughtful conversation around ideas that can potentially streamline, simplify, and improve the tax system. We hope that you’ll share your thoughts with us and with everyone who comes to our Tax and Financial Center site. We want this to be a robust dialogue and we want you to be a part of it.
