Economic Forecast and Tax Update

A RINA and Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sponsored Event!

It has been over 30 years since the United States has enacted comprehensive tax reform.  Since then, special interest loopholes have increased and our tax code has tripled in size.   Congress is currently working on tax reform to jumpstart the American economy.  Can Congress get a permanent, comprehensive solution that increases economic growth without increasing the deficits? Ray Evans will provide his perspective on how the current tax reform proposals will affect your economic outlook and their chances of becoming law.     

Alex Lin, US Economist for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Global Markets, US Economics, will provide an overview of national and local trends impacting the economy. His commentary on economic factors and key trends are sure to provide attendees with insights that can help them move their businesses in the right direction.
