Journal-Gazette Reports on Upcoming Indiana Tax Conference

From the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette:

Gov. Mike Pence will keynote the daylong Indiana Tax Competitiveness and Simplification Conference set for June 24 at the Indiana Government Center.

Nearly 200 local and national tax experts and policy makers will attend. A news release said the conference will focus on how to create a more competitive business and individual tax climate in Indiana. It will include discussion on new and fresh ideas as well as known best practices in state taxation.

“This conference is an excellent opportunity to examine our tax structures in open and frank discussions we hope will inform the 2015 General Assembly,” Pence said.

The conference will include two special presentations and seven panels.

Some entities that will be represented include The Laffer Center, Americans for Tax Reform, The Mercatus Center, Tax Foundation, Tax Analysts and Pew Charitable Trusts.

The conference is open to the media but not the general public due to space. All sessions will be video recorded and available for viewing within two hours of completion at
