Abstract

Reforming the tax system of the US has become a major policy agenda of the Trump administration. After months of negotiations the “Big Six”, including the Treasury Secretary, National Economic Director, Republicans in the House and the Senate are gradually converging on the degree and scale of tax reforms. What will be the impacts of such reforms on growth, efficiency and redistribution of income among households is an issue of immense interest among the American people. We provide summary of findings of study conducted by a team of economists in the University of Hull in England and Suffolk University in Boston for the National Centre for Policy Analysis that have also been published in refereed journals.
