Junior Tax Scholars Conference Concludes Today at BU

The Second Annual Junior Tax Scholars Conference concludes today at BU with these panels:

Panel #4:  Taxation and Democracy

Lunch Discussion Topic: To What Extent Should Our Research Make Political Concessions? What elements of the tax system do you accept as a given when talking about tax reform? Should you account for administrability concerns? Should you take a realization-based system as a given? The capital gains preference? Tax-exempt entities? Revenue-neutrality? As scholars, how should we strike the right balance between rigorous theoretical analysis and relevance to the politically-charged debates of the day?

Panel #5:  Tax Administration
