What Executives Need to Know about the Future of Taxes

January 19, 2021

Tuesday, January 19 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
Online

EMBA Webinar – What Executives Need to Know about the Future of Taxes

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) was the first significant tax reform in the U.S. since 1986. But now there are many sunsetting provisions of the TCJA, and the recent political landscape suggests further changes may be in the works.

In this webinar, led by Jennifer Blouin, Professor of Accounting at the Wharton School, as we discuss how anticipated reforms could affect business investment incentives. Join us to learn about:

  • The tax burden facing businesses (and individuals)
  • The shifting international landscape, as Europe and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member nations are looking for ways to raise revenue from multinational corporations
  • The potential changes to business taxation that we may see from the incoming administration

Speaker Bio: Professor Blouin is the Richard B. Worley Professor of Financial Management in accounting at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. She studies taxation in many contexts, including capital structure, asset pricing, payout policy and multinational firm behavior. Professor Blouin’s research has been published in top-tier academic journals including Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Financial Economics, National Tax Journal and the Journal of the American Taxation Association. She has received funding from the Rodney L. White Center for Financial Research, the Global Initiatives Research Program and the International Tax Policy Forum. Professor Blouin is an Editor for the Review of Accounting Studies and serves on the editorial boards of several other leading accounting journals. She is also a Wharton Fellow and Penn Fellow.
