About the Committee
We are the Committee on Tax Policy and Simplification. The Tax Policy and Simplification Committee was formed in 2009 by the merger of the Formation of Tax Policy, VAT and Simplification Committees. The Committee's mission is to provide timely and topical tax policy and reform discussion by leading tax policy makers and scholars as well as practitioners. Since the Committee's formation, it has provided panels on topics ranging from international to state and local tax, corporate tax to estate tax, and analysis of tax reform proposals by lawmakers, blue ribbon commissions, other experts and commentators, and the ABA Tax Section itself. The Tax Policy and Simplification Committee welcomes participation by practitioners, academics, and government lawyers. We hope to see you at a future meeting.
