Understanding Tax Reform and Its History

Today our host Mitch Jeserich speaks with Eric Toder, co-director of Tax Policy Center at the Urban Institute, about the history and the potential developments in American tax policy. We delve into the history of American tax reform and discuss the ways in which Trump is seeking to modify the existing tax code. Mr. Toder is a tax expert, having served in number of senior-level positions in tax policy offices, such as deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Tax Analysis at the US Department of the Treasury and director of research at the Internal Revenue Service.
