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 Springfield, Illinois for a luncheon presentation by REMI Economist Peter Evangelakis 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.
Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D., is an Economist at REMI. Since joining REMI in September 2017, he has assisted clients in planning and conducting economic analysis using the REMI model, contributed to the firm’s business development efforts, and prepared and presented in-person and online seminars on topics such as Amazon HQ 2.0 and innovation in transportation.
Prior to starting at REMI, Dr. Evangelakis taught undergraduate Intermediate Microeconomics as a lecturer at the University of Chicago. He is an experienced economic researcher and analyst; highlights of his work include measuring the effects of climate change on mortality and electricity usage and estimating air quality effects of the NOx Budget Program. Dr. Evangelakis has written papers analyzing the effects of Florida property tax reform and the non-pecuniary benefits of building a professional sports stadium. He also served as an intern at The Washington Economics Group, Inc., and The Human Services Coalition of Miami-Dade County.
Dr. Evangelakis holds Ph.D. and Master’s degrees in Economics from University of Chicago and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Mathematics from Swarthmore College.
