Fourteen-Year Anniversary of TaxProf Blog

Happy AnniversaryToday (April 15, of course) marks the 14-year anniversary of TaxProf Blog (and the 23-year anniversary of the TaxProf Email Discussion Group).  I hope the blog has at least partially succeeded in its mission (announced in my very first post) to provide daily news and information of interest to law school tax professors and students; tax lawyers in private practice, government, nonprofits, for-profit corporations, and think tanks; accountants; and others in the tax community.  Here are some numbers:

  • Page Views:  93,989,209
  • Visitors:  21,800,717
  • Average Session Duration:  15 minutes, 57 seconds
  • Comments:  60,534
  • Posts:  38,954

The 100 Most Influential People In Tax And Accounting

100 CoverI am honored to be included on the list of Accounting Today's 100 Most Influential People in Tax and Accounting for the twelfth consecutive year:

Not only is Caron’s blog one of the most important in tax — it hit an alltime high of 1.5 million page views a month in 2016 — its prominence also helped elevate him to his new position as dean of his law school; proof, if any was needed, that thought leadership really does pay off.

I am honored to be on the Top 100 list with such high-powered people in the tax and accounting worlds, including:

  • Karen Abramson (CEO, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting)
  • Joe Baron (Managing Director, Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting)
  • Wayne Berson (CEO, BDO)
  • Kevin Brady (Chair, U.S. House Ways & Means Committee)
  • James Doty (Chair, PCAOB)
  • Lynne Doughtie (Chair & CEO, KPMG)
  • Kimberly Ellison-Taylor (Incoming Chair, AICPA)
  • Cathy Engelbert (CEO, Deloitte)
  • George Farrah (Executive Director, Tax & Accounting, Bloomberg BNA)
  • J. Russell George (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration)

The Last Weekly Tax Highlight And Roundup?

TaxProf Blog LogoOn August 1, 2016, I announced that, due to my growing other commitments, I was reducing the amount of time that I devote to TaxProf Blog by dropping my weekly tax, legal education, SSRN, and student tax note roundups.  Happily, Joe Kristan took over the weekly tax roundup, Scott Fruehwald took over the weekly legal education roundup, and David Gamage (Indiana), Ari Glogower (Ohio State), Daniel Hemel (Chicago), and Erin Scharff (Arizona State) took over the weekly SSRN roundup — and frankly have done better jobs than I did. (Regrettably, no one volunteered to take over the weekly student tax note roundup and it remains dormant.) 

As Joe describes below, this is the 31st and last installment of his weekly tax roundup on TaxProf Blog.  On behalf of all of my readers, I thank Joe for sharing his great work with us.  Joe belongs on the Mount Rushmore of tax bloggers.  We will miss him greatly. 

As I get ready to assume the Pepperdine deanship on June 1 (more here, here, here, here, and here), I am struggling to fulfill my commitment to continue TaxProf Blog.  If you are a law professor who has found TaxProf Blog a helpful resource and would like to help it continue by contributing legal education or tax content on a regular basis, please email me.
