USCIB in the News: Doran Klein at Pacific Rim Tax Conference

USCIB’s vice president for international taxation policy Carol Doran Klein was recently quoted in a Bloomberg BNA piece “U.S. Will Remain Engaged in OECD Tax Work: IRS Official” regarding her comments during a panel in last week’s Seventh Annual Pacific Rim Tax Conference in Palo Alto, California. The two-day conference brought international tax policy and management issues to the forefront of corporate tax leaders and tax professionals, focusing on the Pacific Rim.

Doran Klein spoke on a panel titled “Challenges and Opportunities of BEPS,” alongside Theodore D. Setzer, assistant deputy commissioner (international), Internal Revenue Service. In her remarks, which were captured by BNA, Klein stated that “Companies are very concerned that the U.S. might move away from the multilateral framework. USCIB is encouraging U.S. officials to keep participating in the international tax work of organizations such as the OECD and the United Nations. Dialogue in not improved when your voice is not in the room.”

Doran Klein said Setzer’s remarks were “really important for my members.” She said companies were very concerned that the U.S. might move away from active participation in multilateral tax forums. USCIB would encourage U.S. officials to keep participating in the international tax work of organizations such as the OECD and the United Nations, Doran Klein added.

“Dialogue is not improved when your voice is not in the room,” she said.
