White House Outlines Offshore-Tax fixes

With the White House unveiling a $210 billion plan to tax more of U.S. firms’ overseas earnings and crack down on tax-avoidance loopholes, School of Law Professor Daniel Berman, a former Treasury Department official and now director of the graduate tax program, can look at the historical track record of presidents on such proposals.

“Many of these proposals have been kicking around for a while.  The proposal on dual-capacity taxpayers, for example (applying to special levies where the taxpayer gets an economic benefit) was something that I wrote and got included in the president’s budget proposals more than a dozen years ago.”
