ABA Tax Section Virtual Fall Meeting Kicks Off Today

This week's ABA Tax Section 2023 Virtual Fall Meeting (program) kicks off today. A highlight is the Teaching Taxation program on Wednesday on Tax Justice in the Age of Artificial Intelligence: 

ABA Tax Section Graphic 2The recent and rapid rise of artificial intelligence (AI) technology is positioned to impact all aspects of tax law, including tax practice, administration, ethics, and the tax base itself. As tax law inevitably evolves in response to AI, there will be new opportunities to introduce laws, policies, and practices that make the tax system more equitable. Alternatively, these developments could further entrench inequities that exist under current law. This panel discusses ways that AI might affect tax equity and distributive justice; furthermore, in response to the emergence of this new technology, it will scrutinize the equity implications of proposals to improve tax administration and substantive tax law. In doing so, panelists will have the ambitious threefold agenda: (i) reflect upon tax equity under current law, (ii) consider what AI tells us about values embedded in the tax system, and (iii) explain how tax justice can be advanced in the age of AI.
