What Tax Profs Are Thankful For


  • H. Beau Baez (Charlotte):  "As the pilgrims before me, I thank God for all that he has provided. A nation where I am free to worship God, a home with a loving wife and children, and for His grace in providing me with the ability to work in a field that is personally rewarding."
  • Linda Beale (Wayne State):  "I am thankful for my students in advanced tax courses, because they are willing to take hard courses, do a considerable amount of work day in and day out, and risk being treated as tax nerds by their peers, in order to learn something that is vitally important to the future of the society we live in. My tax students’ commitment to learning, rather than being provided “law on a platter”, is truly inspiring. The fact that we can actually have fun in the process (well, at least some of the time) is awesome."
  • Paul Caron (Cincinnati): "I am thankful for my wonderful wife and children, the best job in the world, our church community (particularly the men in my Friday morning accountability group), and the God that makes it all possible."
  • Mark Cochran (St. Mary's):  "Call it corny, but I'm thankful for my TaxProf colleagues and the opportunity to be part of the virtual community."
  • Bridget Crawford (Pace):  "Tax Notes Today and Steve Leimberg."
  • David Hasen (Penn State):  "I am thankful that God blessed me with the best job in the world -- a job that allows me not only to research and write, but to teach students about a great profession and to help them understand the privileges and responsibilities that come with being a lawyer, especially the privilege of helping others less fortunate."
  • Francine Lipman (Chapman):  "I am very thankful that I have been privileged to be a part of many wonderfully diverse communities in 2009, including Polk County Township in rural Wisconsin and the Tenderloin where we have been living during our visit at UC Hastings College of the Law. And, of course, the cyberspace community of TaxProf Blog. Many, many thanks to Paul and all... "
  • Jim Maule (Villanova):  [see here]
  • Peter Prescott (Indiana-Indianapolis):  "I’m simply thankful to be a new tax professor at IU-Indianapolis. Who could ask for more than the opportunity to spend time interacting with students while learning and teaching about tax law? It sure beats private practice!"
