Future Shock? Impact of U.S. Fiscal Policy on Corporate Taxation in an Increasingly Competitive Global Marketplace

9th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium
February 20 - 21, 2008
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, D.C.
Program Managers: KPMG LLP

The year 2009 is a potential watershed year for the structure of the U.S. tax system:
     * More than a trillion dollars of tax cuts enacted since 2001 are scheduled to expire in 2010
Burgeoning entitlement program costs pose an increasing budget threat
     * Outmoded tax laws make it difficult for
businesses to compete globally

These near-term challenges provide an opportunity to evaluate the way corporate business income is taxed. Join business taxation experts and policymakers to discuss the goals of our tax system in this evolving fiscal context. Discover how your business will be affected and what you should be doing now.
