Senate Finance Committee to Discuss Tax Reform

The United States Senate Committee on Finance (the “Committee”) will hold hearings on July 18, 2017 to discuss options for overhauling the tax code and to consider the nomination of David J. Kautter as U.S. Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy.

The first hearing will focus on catalyzing economic growth, competitiveness and job creation. Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch (R-UT) explained that the purpose of the hearing will be to give committee members the opportunity to explore how Congress can “act to implement a simpler, fairer tax system.”

Following the hearing on tax reform, the Committee will consider the nomination of David J. Kautter to serve as U.S. Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy. Currently, Mr. Kautter serves as Partner-in-Charge at RSM US, an audit, tax and consulting firm in Washington, D.C.
