UOG Masters of Public Administration, Public Budgeting Class to Host Tax Forum
The University of Guam Masters of Public Administration Public Budgeting class today announced an upcoming forum entitled The Tax Link: Guam and the U.S. Tax Code. The forum will be held on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at the UOG School of Business
and Public Administration in the IT&E Lecture Hall, Room 131 beginning at 6 p.m. The
public is invited to attend and to join the discussion.
The UOG Masters of Public Administration students strives to understand and contribute to the significance of current issues facing Guam and the region. As Guam continues to work toward improving economic growth and stability, a significant factor in the road to sustainability is the way in which Guam’s tax system is set up. This forum will address the history of Guam’s tax system, our current tax system, and the possibility of changing our system in the future.
"As a class initiative, our main objective is to inform the public and increase awareness on the issue of GovGuam’s remaining linked or choosing to delink from the federal tax system so everyone can understand the issue from both perspectives,” said Forum Coordinator Leonel Llegado.
Professor Dr. Doreen Crisostomo added, “we hope that by bringing together public and private sector representatives who worked on the development of Guam’s tax system we can give the people a clear picture of how our tax system was established, how it has evolved, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of maintaining the status quo or changing our system in the future.”
