UMN Experts: Tax reform legislation
Congress has passed tax reform legislation that is expected to be signed by President Trump soon. University of Minnesota experts Jay Kiedrowski and Paul Gutterman weigh-in on the impact on individuals and businesses.
Jay Kiedrowski, Senior Fellow
"Borrowing from the future to give us money today - bad policy."
Jay Kiedrowski is a senior fellow in the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. He served as Minnesota Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner of Finance from 1983 to 1987. Kiedrowski has expertise in public management, local government and health care policy.
Paul Gutterman, J.D., LL.M.
“While the tax legislation makes some incremental change toward reform, the end product is more a Republican political statement to get something done. The costs are a swelling budget deficit and pumping an economy that has no need of it. While lowering the corporate tax rate was a necessary and laudable goal, the Republican legislation fails to pay for it.”
Paul Gutterman is the director of the Masters of Business Taxation program in the Carlson School of Management. He has expertise in federal income taxation, tax research and communication, and tax-exempt organizations.
