Also on the agenda: a plenary session panel discussion on Capital and Wealth Taxation with distinguished panelists including Henrik Kleven (Princeton University), Wojciech Kopczuk (Columbia University), Beth Kaufman (Caplin & Drysdale), and Jason Furman (Harvard Kennedy School).

The conference includes a short-course education session on Saturday afternoon (topic and speaker to be announced) and many opportunities for graduate students to present their research and network with NTA members.

Submissions from the fields of accounting, economics, law, public policy, and tax administration are encouraged.  Our program committee includes experts in all fields.

Members and non-members are invited to submit individual papers to be integrated into sessions, proposals for complete sessions of papers, and proposals for panel discussions.
