The column, appearing in Monday's issue of Tax Notes, the weekly magazine on federal tax policy and administration, will focus on the politics and policies that businesses confront regarding tax issues as they try to compete and succeed both domestically and globally. Ms. Harris will advocate for pro-growth tax policies to help businesses achieve that success. The column will also appear in Tax Notes Today, Tax Analysts’ federal daily online publication.
In her inaugural column, the author discusses the country's fiscal problems and how deficit reduction proposals will affect tax reform. She suggests parameters for tax reform, comments on deficit reduction proposals and their tax components, and argues that a lack of presidential leadership on the issue will severely damage the country.
