Friday: Who Should Tax International Income?

January 28, 2019

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Treasury Chip Harter to Keynote one-day conference at Georgetown Law

WASHINGTON – On Friday, Feb. 1, Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) and the International Tax Policy Forum (ITPF) will host the “Who Should Tax International Income?” conference at Georgetown Law.


Over the past few years, countries around the globe have been proposing “Google taxes” and other measures designed to tax large internet companies. Demands for these types of taxes have only increased, with the EU proposing multiple options and the head of the OECD announcing plans for a digital tax at Davos last week. Together with U.S. tax reform, these measures have put strain on the international taxation architecture that has served developed countries for almost a century.  The “Who Should Tax International Income?” conference at Georgetown Law will convene experts from academia, government and private practice to address current challenges and propose realistic solutions for countries to find common ground. U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Treasury Lafayette “Chip” Harter will present the U.S. view in a luncheon keynote address.


Keynote: Lafayette “Chip” Harter, Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Tax Affairs, U.S. Department of the Treasury
