114th Annual Conference on Taxation

November 17-20, 2021

Thank you for attending the 114th Annual NTA Conference. The conference covered a broad range of topics in tax policy and public finance.  Motivated by the important role of public assistance programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and by the discussions of policy reform occurring during the early days of the Biden administration, the theme of the conference was “Improving the U.S. Safety Net.” Keynote speakers and plenary panels were oriented towards analysis of U.S. safety-net policies.

The conference included a new submission category, Inequality and Disparities, for papers that investigate disparities by characteristics such as race or gender as well as the effects of tax or non-tax policies that are intended to alleviate them.

The 2021 virtual conference was the biggest conference in NTA history, with almost 700 registrants. The conference had nearly 100 panel sessions, award presentations, keynotes, plenaries and other special events.

All recordings from the 2021 Annual Conference have been posted on the conference program page. All registered attendees will have access to the recordings until the end of January.
