Dec 16, 2015, 09:46 ET from Tax Council Policy Institute

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As a prelude to its 17th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium in February, the Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI) will host a live webcast, "Global Capital and Tax Reform, At Home and Abroad," on Thursday, Dec. 17, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (ET). Individuals interested in attending the webcast can register here.

Sharing their insights during the webcast panel discussion will be:

  • Manal Corwin, national leader of International Tax, KPMG LLP, and principal-in-charge of International Tax Policy in the firm's Washington National Tax practice;
  • John Stowell, senior vice president, corporate taxes, The Walt Disney Company;
  • Marty Sullivan, chief economist, Tax Analysts; and
  • Tom West, tax legislative counsel, U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The webcast will be presented on behalf of TCPI by KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, which is serving as program manager for the upcoming TCPI Symposium, "Capital Matters: How Taxes Influence the Global Creation, Deployment, and Mobility of Capital," scheduled for Feb. 11-12, 2016, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C.

"A number of transformational tax issues are coming to a head all at once in the U.S. and abroad," said John Gimigliano, principal-in-charge of KPMG's Federal Tax Legislative & Regulatory Services and former senior tax counsel for the U.S. House of Representative's Committee on Ways and Means, who will moderate the webcast. "We'll examine some of them on the webcast to gain a better understanding of their potential impact on governments and corporate taxpayers. 

"In the U.S., Congress plans to continue to push forward on tax reform, both domestic and international, which include a number of traditional ideas as well as new concepts such as the 'innovation box,'" Gimigliano added. "Meanwhile, in jurisdictions around the world, implementation of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) project on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) is transforming the tax landscape for many businesses."

Gimigliano said that the webcast's distinguished group of panelists will share their views and address the common thread in these issues, as well as those concerning the taxation of capital in its many forms, including financial capital, intellectual capital, and capital assets.
