NYU Hosts Symposium on Tax and Corporate Social Responsibility

NYU Logo (2013)The NYU Journal of Law & Business and the NYU Graduate Tax Program hosted a symposium yesterday on Tax and Corporate Social Responsibility:

From the enactment of the corporate excise tax in 1909 to the present, the corporate tax in the United States has generated intense debate. Topics at the center of this debate have ranged from the fundamental purpose of the tax to moral obligations of corporations to pay tax to tax transparency and accountability. This half-day symposium will continue the discussion by addressing two questions: Should corporations pay tax? And should corporate tax returns be public?

Panel #1:  Should Corporations Pay Tax?

Panel #2:  Should Corporate Tax Returns Be Public?

  • Moderator:  David Kamin (NYU)
  • Presenter:  Joshua Blank (NYU), Reconsidering Corporate Tax Privacy
  • Discussants:  Allison Christians (McGill), Reuven Avi-Yonah (Michigan), Peter Barnes (Duke)
