New Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Increasing U.S. Income and Wealth Inequality

Program Description

The ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice, The Section of Taxation, and The Section of State and Local Government Law together present this new program on the new Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Increasing U.S. Income and Wealth Inequality. The federal TCJA delivers significant tax reductions to wealthy persons and larger corporations, but limited and confusing benefits to lower-income persons and small businesses. Our panel, which includes a macroeconomist and tax policy experts, will examine the economic and social aspects of Congress’ shifting of the tax burden onto lower-income and working families through the TCJA.
