The Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI) is requiring all 2022 Symposium attendees to be fully vaccinated* prior to the start of the program in May to ensure the safety and health of everyone involved. Record of COVID vaccination must be provided at onsite check-in. Please read our COVID PROTOCOL prior to registration for the health measures we’re implementing as well as answers to FAQs.
* “Fully vaccinated” is defined by the CDC as two weeks after a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Seismic shifts in global business models, economies, and social awareness are pushing tax policy toward an inflection point. During the 2022 program, we will explore several significant trends, along with the evolution of tax policy, to assess how they are interacting with and influencing each other and how tax executives and policymakers are anticipating and responding to these conflicting demands and opportunities. Is there a future that includes tax stability or can we expect continuing aftershocks? Areas to be explored include:
- The new multilateralism – How impactful might Pillars One and Two turn out to be and are these harbingers of new modes of multilateral tax policy development? Who are the key players? How can individual governments address these efforts while still maintaining sovereignty?
- Tax law changes – Are pending changes to the US tax code tinkering at the edges or transforming the fundamentals?
- Tax transparency and governance – How is the continued evolution of environmental, social, and governance standards viewed from the perspective of internal and external stakeholders?
- The impact of change on tax – How have roles and responsibilities evolved for the chief tax officer and the tax department in this rapidly changing environment?
- Fiscal stability – How are governments tapping into traditional and new sources of tax revenue on such unsteady ground while recovering from a pandemic?
Join the discussion with other tax executives, legislators, regulators, administrators, economists, and academics as we come together to explore emerging tax and fiscal policy developments and share insights and practical strategies for managing the impact of these global seismic shifts.

Looking beyond OECD Pillars 1 and 2
While country-by-country reporting and Pillars 1 & 2 have dominated tax news about the Organisation for Economic Development (OECD), the tax agenda at the OECD encompasses much more and a new set of priorities are on deck. We will explore these in a fireside chat with Pascal Saint-Amans, Centre for Tax Policy and Administration at the OECD.
Facilitated by Manal Corwin, Principal in Charge of Washington National Tax, KPMG LLP
11:50 AM - 1:05 PM
Multilateralism: The New Mode
Over the last decade, the OECD has been leading efforts aimed at solving some of the thorniest global tax policy issues. While their Inclusive Framework (IF) membership of approximately 140 countries far exceeds their own 38 member countries, there are many countries not participating who will be impacted by the policies spawned by IF’s recommendations. To fill the gaps, the UN has also redoubled its efforts to establish global tax policy norms, and the IMF and World Bank also participate in both UN and OECD efforts. Is “magical thinking” – the idea that, at the end of it all, we will have a single set of workable rules that are uniformly applied regardless of jurisdiction – the glue that keeps all the stakeholders engaged? Inclusive policymaking is a laudable goal, but is it achievable given the many organizations that are involved, and stakeholders have competing priorities and views on how the rules should work? This session will explore the challenges and opportunities that multilateralism creates as related to the key objectives of fairness, administrability, and sovereignty.

Tax transparency and governance in a new era of good business citizenship
While tax transparency and governance are not new concepts, it is clear that “environmental, social, and governance” (ESG) has recently elevated their importance for businesses. The S (social) of ESG is the force that pulls all the disparate ESG pieces into the larger focus of societal expectations on business behavior and economic contribution. Paying tax is now more than a cost of doing business – paying tax is a way companies demonstrate responsibility and sustainability, and thereby build back trust with all stakeholders (shareholders, customers, governments, etc.). This session will explore emerging ESG and tax transparency and governance initiatives, how they relate to each other and, in many instances, actually create opportunities for businesses.

Pillars One and Two and the implications for the future of tax policy
When 136 of the 140 member countries of the OECD’s IF committed to Pillars 1 and 2 in the fall of 2021 it signaled dramatic reforms of global taxation to come. But much work remains.

ESG ratings and reference points for tax
Rating a company on their tax footprint is gaining popularity. Currently, several tax authorities, pension agencies, and rating agencies include aspects of tax in their ESG ratings. Join us for this mini-session with Ankit Sayani, MSCI's Executive Director and Head of Corporate ESG Models, where we will demystify these ratings and what public information influences them.
Conversation facilitated by James Gordon, Senior Manager, Deloitte

A Chief Tax Officer’s ESG toolbox
While many tax executives are poised to contribute to ESG reporting initiatives at their companies, ESG reporting is in its infancy, particularly for US-based companies. We will hear from tax executives who are at the forefront of these initiatives and the tools and techniques (such as Tax Total Contribution reports) they use as they work with their ESG counterparts and communicate with stakeholders about tax.
