Taxes For The Masses (TFTM):
Lisa De Simone (Associate Professor of Accounting, McCombs School of Business, University of Texas at Austin) and Bridget Stomberg (Associate Professor of Accounting, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University) (friends, professors, tax nerds) discuss tax topics in simple terms.
What is TFTM?
We started this podcast because we love talking tax with each other and want to share our passion with the world. We aim to discuss hot tax topics in a way that informs non-tax and/or non-accounting experts about the issues making headlines. Our goal is to explain each issue in a way anyone can understand - even people who are not tax nerds like us! To do so, we'll provide examples and color commentary that help our audience understand each side of the issue in an objective way. Our own personal biases will inevitably poke out, but we do our best to indicate when we are stating our own opinions versus objectively explaining an issue.
Who Should Listen?
Anyone with an interest in public policy! You don't need a degree in business or economics. In addition to those interested in better understanding tax headlines, we hope our podcast will be useful to students and educators, as well as to those writing the headlines!
How Do We Know What We're Talking About?
As tax professors and researchers, we eat, sleep, breathe taxes.
