Event Description

The conventional wisdom about the relationship between taxes and budgets is backward: The tax code is more an instrument of social and industrial policy than a way to raise revenue. Tax Notes contributing editor Lee Sheppard, one of the most widely read and respected tax commentators in the world, explains how to think more clearly about the tax system.
