On May 16, the Fiscal Research Center will host a presentation on “Tax Policy in Georgia’s 2017 Legislative Session.” Robert Buschman, a senior research associate, will recap the tax-related bills that passed in Georgia’s 2017 legislative session, as well as a few news-making bills that didn’t pass.

Buschman, who leads the FRC team that scores revenue bills for the General Assembly, will put in plain words what tax changes were passed, who would be affected, and how the changes may impact the state budget. Proposed income tax changes in HB 329 and the “economic nexus” bill (HB 61), aimed at improving collection of sales taxes from online sellers, also will be discussed.

Guest Lucia Smeal, assistant professor of accountancy at the J. Mack Robinson College of Business, will provide legal insights.
