With a sweeping tax overhaul taking effect, state policy makers must assess how the new provisions impact their residents and businesses.
The consequences will vary significantly as households in high-cost, high-tax communities will bear the brunt of changes to the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, while low-tax regions could potentially benefit from these changes.
Please join us in Chicago, Illinois for a luncheon presentation by REMI Vice President Billy Leung, exploring the REMI Tax-PI model’s ability to measure these impending tax code changes. REMI Tax-PI is the leading tool for estimating the total economic and revenue impacts of policy changes.
Mr. Billy Leung is the Vice President of REMI, where he plays a leading role in U.S. and international consulting and support services. He has worked with government agencies and organizations throughout North America and the world, helping them achieve their planning and policy analysis goals.
Mr. Leung has assisted clients in addressing the impacts of both policy changes and unpredictable events such as natural disasters. He has evaluated the economic and policy impacts of terrorist attacks and other threats to public safety and public health. His research efforts include:
The Economic Impacts of 9/11 on the New York Region.
Macroeconomic Impacts of Shutting down the US Borders in Response to a Security or Health Threat.
As part of REMI’s global services, Mr. Leung has worked with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Korea Energy Economics Institute. In addition to his international efforts, Mr. Leung has assisted state and regional agencies, including Southern California Association of Governments. He has supported their long-term transportation and environmental planning initiatives.
Mr. Leung joined REMI in 2002 and was promoted to vice president in 2009. Over the years, he has contributed to the development of the REMI model and performed economic impact studies. He has analyzed the economic impact of the biodiesel industry in New York State for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and researched the economic impact of widening New Mexico’s US 54 for the New Mexico Department of Transportation.
He holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and received his M.A. in Regional Economics and Social Development at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. His master’s thesis was on the research and development of incorporating transportation and land use with Input/Output economic modeling.
