US tax reform
Looking forward and leading the way
The United States has an opportunity to advance meaningful tax reform, with both Trump and Republican Congressional leaders prioritizing the issue and pledging to work together on it. From a policy perspective, it will be important to be inclusive and balanced. Tax reform should aim to foster an environment in which employers can create jobs and compete globally through lower tax rates and a more competitive international system. At the same time, it should be fiscally responsible. As the debate unfolds, check back here frequently for tax reform analyses and insights from our EY Center for Tax Policy professionals.
