How the Controversial Border Adjustment Tax Will Affect You
February 2017
Presenters: Mary Burke Baker

Listen to Recording (CLE/CPD Credit Available)

This CLE features a DC-insider view of the controversial border adjustment tax, or “BAT,” under consideration as part of the House Republican tax reform blueprint. President Trump is considering a similar proposal. This program is of special interest to any business that imports or exports goods, services or intangibles. The BAT proposals are complex, controversial, and will profoundly affect businesses in all sectors of the American economy either by denying deductions for the cost of imports or eliminating US income tax on sales of exports.
