Pittsburgh Tax Review Call For Papers: Combatting Poverty Through Federal Tax Policy

Pittsburgh Tax Review Call for Papers: Combatting Poverty Through Federal Tax Policy

Pittsburgh tax reviewAccording to the U.S. Census, in 2022 there were over 37 million people in the United States in poverty. Though, at one time, perhaps the tax code had little to do with relieving poverty, at least since 1975, with the enactment of the Earned Income Tax Credit, Congress has increasingly used tax law as a means of relieving poverty. In light of the important role that tax law and policy now plays in addressing poverty as well as income and wealth inequality in the United States, the Pittsburgh Tax Review invites contributions to a curated issue on the theme of “Combatting Poverty Through Federal Tax Policy.” Contributions will be published in the Fall 2024 issue of the journal’s twenty-second volume.

Contributions might address the current state of US tax approaches to poverty relief, new ideas that Congress could adopt, or both. Authors might approach the issue through the lens of universal basic income, the earned income tax credit, the child tax credit, low-income housing credits, or otherwise. Contributions can range anywhere from 3,500 to 10,000 words.

Interested individuals should send an abstract (no more than 250 words) outlining the topic and substance of their proposed contribution to the Pittsburgh Tax Review by email to [email protected]. Abstracts should be submitted by April 30, 2024. Proposals will be reviewed and invitations will be issued by May 15, 2024. Those invited to participate will be required to submit final drafts of their contributions ready for editing by the Pittsburgh Tax Review’s staff of student editors by September 1, 2024.
