TEI’s Tax Reform Task Force Outlines New Guideposts for Tax Policy

Following a deliberate selection and appointment process last fall, Jason Weinstein, chair of TEI’s Tax Reform Task Force, kicked off the New Year by convening an organizational meeting of his new cross-industry leadership team. This team, which comprises two dozen senior TEI members with tax policy experience from different industries, is intended to play a critical role in furthering TEI’s mission by ensuring that voices from across the industry spectrum are heard in pursuing TEI’s advocacy agenda. With the support of TEI tax counsel, Watson McLeish, the Task Force leaders have undertaken to revisit and refresh TEI’s Guideposts for Tax Reform, which outlined a series of principles intended to inform a comprehensive examination of the Internal Revenue Code and assist policymakers as they attempted to confront the challenge of business tax reform in the 113th Congress. The goal of today’s undertaking is to promulgate a new, timely series of priority principles—TEI’s Guideposts for Tax Policy—to influence the tax policymaking processes in the 117th Congress and Biden administration.
