The focus of this event will be on the proposed repeal of the federal income tax deduction for state and local taxes, which if enacted would substantially increase the after-tax cost of funding state and local government in California. Attention will also be given to the primary elements of the Ryan/Brady "Better Way Forward" tax plan (including the controversial Border Adjustment Tax), as well as the proposed reduction of rates under the Trump plan and the repeal of taxes included in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
