The Implications of Tax Reform for US Business

  • MIT Sloan - Building E62, Room 223 100 Main Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

On Dec. 22, President Donald Trump signed a $1.5 billion tax-cut bill in the largest tax reform since 1986. The tax bill made sweeping changes to corporate and individual taxes, with policy implications that are still relatively unknown.

Professor Robert Pozen, a tax policy expert and senior lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management, has agreed to help us dissect the tax reform, with a specific focus on what the newly passed Act means for US corporations and pass throughs. He will also explain the Act’s different approach to taxing foreign profits of US firms.  

Professor Pozen is a former Harvard Business School professor and is currently chairman of the government board of the Tax Policy Center in Washington DC. He is a former president of Fidelity Investments and executive chairman of MFS Investment Management. He served as Associate General Counsel of the SEC in the late 1970s, and Chairman of the SEC's Advisory Committee on Financial Reporting in 2007-2008. He was a member of the President's Commission to Strengthen Social Security, and served as Secretary of Economic Affairs under Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
