50th Annual Spring Symposium, 2020

Please Read: Unfortunately, the in person Spring Symposium is cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Please note that we are exploring options for holding the conference online, so people can “attend” remotely. We will communicate details of an online option, if we decide to go that route, as soon as possible, but it may take a few weeks. Some other organizations are hosting on-line conferences over the next week or two and we will monitor and learn from their experiences. So, please keep the dates blocked off on your calendar! In the meantime, stay safe!

The Golden Anniversary Symposium: New Thinking on Enduring Questions

National Press Club
May 14-15, 2020
Washington, DC

This year’s conference celebrates 50 years of the NTA Spring Symposium.  Taking a historical look at the tax landscape, we feature several sessions that bring new thinking and new evidence to age-old questions.  Our plenary session covers big ideas in tax policy, which will then be followed by several sessions on the effect of the new tax law on inequality, entrepreneurship, profit shifting, and the move towards a global minimum tax, as well as a session on reforming the EITC. Our luncheon speakers will be  Charles Rettig, 49th Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, and Joseph Thorndike, Contributing Editor at Tax Notes and the Director of the History Project for Tax Analysts.

The Symposium is presented in association with the American Tax Policy Institute.
