Bipartisan panel to analyze GOP tax plans Wednesday at Wayne Law

DETROIT – The Levin Center at Wayne Law will host a bipartisan panel of experts to analyze the pending GOP tax plans from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 15 at Wayne Law.

The event, “The GOP’s Tax Reform: A View from all Sides,” will feature:

  • Daniel M. Houlf, general tax counsel, General Motors Company
  • Former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, chair of the Levin Center at Wayne Law and Wayne Law’s distinguished legislator in residence
  • Wayne Law Distinguished Professor Alan S. Schenk

Moderating the discussion will be Wayne Law Professor Robert M. Ackerman.

This month, House and Senate Republicans in Washington released their respective tax proposals, stirring up controversy on both sides of the aisle. Among the topics discussed will be the objectives of the proposals, treatment of corporations, elimination of certain taxes and deductions, and repatriation of offshore income.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be in Wayne Law’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium, 471 W. Palmer St., Detroit. Parking is available for $7.75 (credit or debit card only) in Parking Structure No. 1 across West Palmer Street from the law school. Registration is required by emailing levincenter@wayne.edu.
