  • General international principles of taxation and how they are applied in the United States under present law
  • Selected issues that have been of particular interest to policymakers as they evaluate the U.S. international tax system, including the competitiveness of the U.S. tax system; the economic distortions arising from deferral; the shifting of income and business operations away from the United States; the tax incentive to locate deductions in the United States; inversions; and the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project
