George Yin

The 2017 federal tax law changes were controversial from the beginning. The bill was essentially written in secret, without the benefit of public hearings, and opponents, though they hadn’t seen even a draft, lambasted the bill as a giveaway to “the rich” that would massively increase the deficit and the national debt.

 

George Yin, an expert on federal tax law, presented a balanced assessment of the bill’s likely consequences on individuals, on businesses and on the economy. His analysis includes both a lay explanation of tax-law arcana such as “the Byrd rule” and an even-handed, practical critique of the assessments of the bill by its supporters and its opponents.

Professor Yin was formerly chief of staff to Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation (known colloquially as “Joint Tax”), a nonpartisan body that helps draft tax legislation, analyzes it and prepares official revenue estimates concerning its effects. Prior to that he was tax counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan, the University of Florida, and the George Washington University Law School.

 

Mr. Yin spoke at the Wednesday September 12, 2018 meeting of the Senior Statesmen of Virginia. The meeting was held at the Senior Center in Charlottesville. Following the presentation, questions were taken from the audience. The program was moderated by SSV board member Bob McGrath.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David talks to two artists who have put on their arts organizer hats to better spread the good word and the good art. First, Mike Bizarro is putting together an A Capella Hip Hop night at The Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. It’s local wordsmiths speaking their words without their beats. True to his role, Mike drops bits of knowledge about the nature of hip hop and the nature of art as if the knowledge was going out of style. Next, David welcomes back Miller Murray Susen just as Live Arts Theatre welcomes her back as its Education Director. We talk to Miller about what Live Arts offers in terms of education and what she hopes it can offer in the future.
