Patricia White, Dean of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, lauded Kornhauser's work in examining the origins of the capital gains tax, the corporate income tax and the constitutional definition of income. "We are delighted to have Marjorie join our faculty," White said. "She is one of the most prominent tax scholars in the United States and perhaps the leading figure writing in the history of tax concepts."
Kornhauser's current research projects include the role of taxation in the New Deal, voluntary taxpayer compliance (commissioned by the National Taxpayer Advocate), and taxation of the family in the United States. For the latter, she'll lead a workshop this spring at Cambridge University in England.
Her articles have been published both nationally and internationally. Some of her recent publications include:
- Choosing a Tax Rate Structure in the Face of Disagreement, 52 UCLA L. Rev. 1697 (2005)
- Doing the Full Monty: Will Publicizing of Tax Information Increase Compliance?, 18 Can. J.L. & Juris. 95 (2005)
- Rooms of Their Own: An Empirical Study of Occupational Segregation by Gender Among Law School Professors, 73 UMKC L. Rev. 293 (2004), reprinted in Women and the Law (Jane Campbell Moriarty, ed., Thomson/West, 2006)
- The Story of Macomber: The Continuing Legacy of Realization, in Tax Stories: An In-Depth Look at Ten Leading Federal Income Tax Cases, (Paul Caron, ed., Foundation Press, 2003)
