The U.S. Senate Finance Committee today announced that a hearing on business tax reform is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
According to a Finance Committee release, the hearing will “examine ways to improve the U.S. tax code’s business provisions and create a healthier economic environment that will encourage job creators to invest in the United States and increase their competitiveness in the global market.”
Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said:
“There are a variety of changes in the tax code that can be made to help shift the economic landscape and create fertile ground for businesses to invest and hire new workers here at home…. Next week, we will hear from experts about policy options that have the potential to boost economic growth and give American businesses the tools they need to create and retain higher-paying American jobs and stay competitive in today’s global economy.”
A list of witnesses scheduled to testify is available on the Finance Committee’s website.
