Rand Paul’s Tax Plan May Be Radical, But It’s Not Impossible
by Joseph J. Thorndike
Last week Rand Paul unveiled his plan for the “Fair and Flat Tax.” That makes him the latest – but certainly not the last – presidential candidate to embrace the rhetoric of flatness. If recent experience is any guide, it won’t be an easy sell. Just ask Steve Forbes, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, or any of the other failed candidates who put flat taxes at the center of their campaigns.

Supreme Court Could Create $353 Billion Deficit Problem
by Jeremy Scott
The wait continues for the Supreme Court's decision in King v. Burwell -- the Court did not release the opinion on June 22.

Renouncing the Dogma of Surrey’s Infallibility
by Ajay Gupta
Treasury’s export of Stanley Surrey’s arm’s-length standard was perhaps the most successful case of ideological conversion in the arena of international tax policy. Even as the United States inches away from that construct, the OECD clings to it with a zeal befitting a convert.
