Upcoming Symposia on Tax Administration

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

There are some interesting tax administration symposia coming up. I will briefly describe two of them.

Tomorrow the University of Minnesota School of Law is hosting a conference on reforming the IRS. Top academics in the area such as Professors Kristin Hickman, Steve Johnson and Leandra Lederman are delivering papers; other participants include prior PT guest posters such as Professors Andy Grewal and Chris Walker. NTA Nina Olson is delivering a keynote speech that seems fascinating (looking at recent research linking trust and compliance). We will link to papers as they become available.

On Friday April 24 Deena Ackerman at Treasury and I are co-organizing an American Tax Policy Institute conference called Delivering Benefits to Low-Income Taxpayers Through the Tax System. The conference is an all day-event and will be held at Skadden’s DC office. The ATPI conference has an international as well as domestic focus, and will bring together academics, government officials from here and abroad and other policy makers to discuss creative approaches for better delivery of benefits. Prior PT guest posters Dave Williams and Bryan Camp and many others will be among the presenters. Stay tuned for more on this.

Comment Policy: While we all have years of experience as practitioners and attorneys, and while Keith and Les have taught for many years, we think our work is better when we generate input from others. That is one of the reasons we solicit guest posts (and also because of the time it takes to write what we think are high quality posts). Involvement from others makes our site better. That is why we have kept our site open to comments.

If you want to make a public comment, you must identify yourself (using your first and last name) and register by including your email. If you do not, we will remove your comment. In a comment, if you disagree with or intend to criticize someone (such as the poster, another commenter, a party or counsel in a case), you must do so in a respectful manner. We reserve the right to delete comments. If your comment is obnoxious, mean-spirited or violates our sense of decency we will remove the comment. While you have the right to say what you want, you do not have the right to say what you want on our blog.
