President Obama's Corporate Tax Reform - AEI Experts

"President Obama's tax proposal to cut the corporate tax rate to 28% would take the US's ranking from last place (34th) to 32nd place. We need more leadership than that to get a truly competitive and pro-growth tax system." – Alex Brill

Today, the Obama administration will release its corporate tax reform plan, which will lower the top rate to 28 percent. The following American Enterprise Institute (AEI) tax experts are available for comment:

Alex Brill served as the policy director and top economist for the House Ways and Means Committee, and served on the staff of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers. He is the author of a pro-growth, progressive, and practical proposal to reform corporate taxes (details here). Brill can be reached at [email protected]

Alan Viard served as a senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and has worked for the Treasury Department’s Office of Tax Analysis, the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, and the Joint Committee on Taxation. Viard can be reached at [email protected]
