Duffy to Moderate Panel at Tax Council Policy Institute’s 17th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium

The Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI) is a highly respected non-profit and non-partisan public policy research and educational organization that has been sponsoring exceptional tax programs and conferences for more than 15 years.  Its symposia are renowned for facilitating the opportunity for leading tax professionals and policy makers from government, academia, and the private sector to fully explore all aspects of current topics.  TCPI’s 2016 Tax Policy and Practice Symposium titled “Capital Matter:  How Taxes Influence the Global Creation, Deployment, and Mobility of Capital” is an educational assembly of more than 40 presenters representing tax leaders from business, government, and academia.  The unique two-day symposium will explore the critical issue that stands at the center of the global tax agenda:  the taxation of capital.  The event will take place February 12-13 at the Ritz Carlton in Washington D.C.

Mary Duffy will moderate a panel titled “Capitalization:  Finding a Better Way”.  Many believe the math of tax reform requires a change to the current capitalization and cost recovery regime. The panel will explore recent proposals to change the current systems of capitalization and cost recovery and the potential impact of such policies on various stakeholders.  Panelists include Ray Beeman, former Tax Counsel with the US House Committee on Ways and Means, Diane Dossin, Chief Tax Officer of Ford Motor Company, Jude Lemke, former Tax Counsel with the Senate Finance Committee, and Eric Lucas, former Attorney-Advisor at the Treasury’s Office of Tax Policy.

Mary Duffy is a Managing Director in Andersen Tax’s US National Tax office and is the co-leader of Andersen Tax’s accounting methods team. Immediately prior to joining Andersen Tax, Mary served as one of two Legislation Tax Accountants with the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) from 2011 to 2013. While with the JCT, Mary worked with key tax personnel within Congress on the development and drafting of tax legislation as well as various tax reform proposals.
