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
