NYU Hosts Tax Dilemmas in Sitcoms

NYUThe NYU Graduate Tax Program hosts its 4th Annual Tax Movie Night tonight, To Pay or Not To Pay: Tax Dilemmas in Sitcoms:

We will screen four classic television episodes, spanning different decades, where major characters are faced with tax compliance choices. Some characters choose to report their tax liabilities honestly and others do not. The episodes featured are from The Honeymooners (1956), The Phil Silvers Show (1956), The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1975) and The Simpsons (1998). Professor Lawrence Zelenak from Duke Law School will join us as a special guest speaker and will lead a discussion on what popular culture can teach us about public attitudes toward tax compliance.
