Focus Of The Hearing:
The hearing will explore ideas on the framework that Congress should use to evaluate tax extenders, the principles of good tax policy that Congress should apply during this evaluation, and the specific metrics against which Congress should test the merits of particular provisions. While the hearing is not intended to focus on specific tax extenders, individual provisions may be discussed for the purpose of illustrating how to use such principles and metrics.
