    TFU 2022: 10 Tax Reforms for Growth and Opportunity

    TFU 2022: 10 Tax Reforms for Growth and Opportunity

    The return of high inflation after 40 years should cause policymakers to rethink their approach, get back to basics, and focus on economic growth and opportunity. Tax reform should be a key pillar in this approach. 
    The third session of Tax Foundation University 2022 will provide a demo of the Tax Foundation’s Taxes and Growth (TAG) Model and an overview of Tax Foundation’s 10 Tax Reforms for Growth and Opportunity. We will discuss how charting a path of increased economic opportunity, innovation and dynamism, growing industries, and greater financial security can be facilitated by better tax policy.

    TFU 2022: The Individual Income Tax

    The second session of Tax Foundation University 2022 will cover key parts of the individual tax code, explaining why it contains elements of income and consumption taxes and how it applies to a growing share of businesses, colloquially known as “pass-throughs.” 
    Our experts will discuss the temporary expansion of work and child-related provisions and its impact on growth. Finally, you will learn about ideas proposed as part of the Build Back Better agenda, including a high-income surcharge, mark-to-market tax, and pass-through business tax increases.

    Inflation, Debt, and Taxes

    Inflation, Debt, and Taxes

    Inflation has made an unwelcome comeback, with consumer prices rising at rates not seen since 1982. Where did this inflation come from and what might its impacts be? What does inflation have to do with tax and fiscal policy and how could each be used to mitigate its negative effects?
    The Tax Foundation recently hosted a panel discussion with experts from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and The Hoover Institution to discuss these questions and more, including the impact of enacted and proposed federal legislation on inflation, debt, and tax policy and how all three interact.

    Eight Tax Reforms for Mobility and Modernization

    Eight Tax Reforms for Mobility and Modernization

    Change is here: The pandemic sparked a move toward a more mobile economy for workers and businesses across the country. Where you live no longer has to dictate where you work—and that mobile economy is here to stay.  
    States are unprepared: Our economy is changing, but state tax codes have failed to keep up. In some states, moreover, existing tax provisions exacerbate the impact of high inflation and contribute to the supply chain crisis. 
    A road map forward: On our latest Talking Tax webinar, our state experts overviewed the landscape and explained how states can remove impediments to new living and working arrangements, enhance their attractiveness for increasingly mobile employers and employees, and respond to greater economic uncertainty and rising inflation.

    Talking Tax Reform: Mobile Workforce, Nexus, and Telework

    Talking Tax Reform: Mobile Workforce, Nexus, and Telework

    The way we work is changing, and tax codes have not caught up. The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically accelerated a trend toward remote, flexible, and multistate work arrangements, but existing tax codes often penalize employers and employees alike as companies provide workers with greater flexibility.
    Not only will many workers face filing requirements in multiple states, but in some cases, so-called “convenience rules” will obligate them to pay taxes on the same income to two states, with no offsetting credits. Even working remotely for a single day in some states is enough to trigger filing obligations. Hybrid work arrangements, moreover, will yield far more employees working in an office in one state some days, and from home in a different state for others. For businesses, an employee’s decision to work remotely from another state can establish tax nexus that did not exist previously and can sometimes result in the company’s income from services being taxed in two states.
    As Americans settle into a much more workplace-flexible new normal, many taxpayers—employers and employees alike—continue to grapple with the tax implications. Our panel of tax experts is here to explain the issues facing businesses and workers, discussing key questions such as:
    What can cause a worker to trigger business tax liability where the business previously lacked nexus?Under what circumstances can remote workers lead to double taxation of business income?How should a business withhold for employees that live and work in a different state than its offices?In the absence of federal legislation, would workers need to file an income tax return in every state they worked in, even if only for a day?What reforms could state tax codes incorporate to prepare for an increasingly remote workforce to attract mobile workers but also address revenue needs?Learn more at: https://taxfoundation.org/events/talking-tax-reform-mobile-workforce-nexus-telework/
