With a historic global tax deal on the horizon (albeit delayed), new tax provisions lurking in the BBB, and renewed congressional interest in corporate tax practices, what better time to talk tax?

On the latest HPS Insights, HPS Partner Tony Fratto and HPS Senior Director Elliott Owensby are joined by Alex Parker. Alex is a writer, researcher, and Principal at Capitol Counsel. A former journalist at Law360, Alex previously covered federal taxation issues, such as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, efforts to address taxation of online commerce at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, and the debate over inequality in national and global tax systems.

The trio first discusses the latest in international tax, including a discussion of different countries’ motives for updating global tax frameworks and the domestic politics underlying international tax debates in the U.S. The group also covers tax provisions in BBB, compliance, and prospects for an agreement on a new global tax framework.
