Todd Metcalf is a principal in PwC’s Tax Policy Services group within the firm’s Washington National Tax Services practice. In his role, Mr. Metcalf advises clients on important federal policy issues, including tax policy, the economy and the effect of proposed policy changes on businesses. His insights and knowledge help companies navigate a dynamic legislative and regulatory environment, assess critical policy challenges and advance policies to improve their economic and competitive footing in the marketplace.

Prior to joining PwC, Mr. Metcalf served as Democratic Chief Tax Counsel on the Senate Finance Committee under Ranking Member, Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon. In that role, he was responsible for the development of tax policy and legislation, including reform initiatives. During his tenure, he managed the negotiations with House and Senate Republicans on the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 and the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 and played a central part in the development and negotiation of the revenue provisions included in various pieces of legislation, including the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act of 2015, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 and the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014.

Mr. Metcalf also spent eight years in the House working for two members of the Ways and Means Committee before joining House leadership on the staff of then-Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina in 2007, serving first as deputy floor director and, ultimately, as floor director and counsel. In those roles, he played a central advisory role–as one of the principal vote counters and policy advisers–in the passage of all major pieces of legislation from 2007-10, including the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Act, the Energy Independence and Security Act, the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act, and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act among others. He also spent almost two years working in the Obama Administration as Deputy Director of the Office of Recovery at the U.S. Department of Labor.

Mr. Metcalf received his J.D. from Washington University School of Law in St. Louis and graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from the University of Tennessee.
