Digital Taxation Breakfast Briefing at Georgetown Law
November 27, 2017 —
Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law and the Graduate Tax Program will convene a French Finance Ministry official and Georgetown Law tax professors to explore the EU’s developing approach to digital taxation and what it could mean for U.S. multinational companies at a Wednesday breakfast briefing.
What is the future of digital taxation in Europe? As Americans focus on U.S. tax reform debates, the European Union is moving forward on efforts to tax the "digital economy." What shape will those efforts take? How will they affect U.S. multinationals such as Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon? Will they be consistent with other recent international tax developments? How will they align with proposed reforms to the U.S. international tax rules? The Deputy Head of the Tax Policy Directorate at the French Ministry of Finance will provide an overview of how France and the European Union are proceeding in their efforts to develop a digital tax. His presentation will be followed by comments from Georgetown Law professors and audience Q & A.
