eBay CFO Discusses Tax Policy in Washington DC

November 21, 2017

Recently eBay Chief Financial Officer Scott Schenkel met with policymakers in Washington to discuss a variety of tax-related issues. This included discussions about Internet sales tax and the effect of tax policy decisions on small, internet-enabled businesses. During his visit Scott met with a variety of influential legislators, including US Representatives George Holding (R-NC), Peter Roskam (R-IL), and Adrian Smith (R-NE), all of whom sit on the powerful Ways and Means Committee and were integral in drafting the comprehensive tax reform bill. Scott also met with Jeremy Katz, the Deputy Director of the National Economic Council at the White House. 
With tax reform at the top of the Washington policy agenda, it was a perfect time for Scott to engage with senior Congressional policymakers and White House staff to advocate for sound tax policy for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
