Virtual Event: International Spillovers in Tax Policy

Join the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the UNC Tax Center for their annual convening, this year held virtually, on Wednesday, June 8, 2022.
With globalization, national tax policies increasingly have international spillovers. In corporate tax, countries compete for investment from multinational enterprises by cutting statutory rates. And in environmental tax, countries hesitate to introduce carbon taxes for fear of disadvantaging domestic industries.
Keynote speaker Rosanne Altshuler will discuss international tax spillovers and the roles played by home countries, host countries, and multinational corporations. And two expert panels will discuss how the US corporate tax has affected intellectual property location and how the US can design a carbon tax that minimizes shifting production to countries with lower carbon prices.
