When the TCJA Expires: A Tax Policy Summit

On March 28, 2024, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget hosted When the TCJA Expires: A Tax Policy Summit, an event focusing on the 2025 tax cut expirations and future tax policy.

With large parts of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act set to expire, policymakers will soon face important decisions regarding the tax code’s future. These choices could add trillions of dollars to the national debt, or they could put us on a path toward genuine tax reform.

We were pleased to invite this gathering of the tax and budget communities to discuss how best to handle this pivotal moment. The event included two panel discussions covering ideologically diverse perspectives on how to handle the upcoming expirations, as well as the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Following the event, we hosted a cocktail reception where attendees were able to try out our new "Build Your Own Tax Extensions" interactive tool.
