Kentucky Chamber announces inaugural Tax Summit
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is set to host its inaugural Tax Summit on Thursday, September 14 to provide thoughtful discussion on improving Kentucky’s competitiveness through tax reform. The summit will allow business leaders, advocates, and citizens an opportunity to hear from and interact with local, state, and federal policy makers.
With Governor Bevin highlighting the need for tax reform, and the potential for a special legislative session this fall, taxes are at the forefront of discussions in Frankfort. Further, recent announcements at the federal level have signaled that Congress will begin federal tax reform talks later this fall. In addition to discussion on state and federal taxes, the summit will include panel discussions on local tax implications and infrastructure investment.
The Chamber is partnering with national experts including the Tax Foundation, Council on State Taxation, Council on State Chambers and others to provide assessments on Kentucky’s current tax code and examples for improving Kentucky’s competitiveness while also meeting the need for investment.
The Tax Summit is set for Thursday, September 14 at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington beginning at 8:30 am and concluding at 4:30 pm.
