114th Annual Conference on Taxation

November 17-20, 2021

The 114th Annual Conference on Taxation will cover a broad range of topics in tax policy and public finance. We welcome submissions from the fields of accounting, economics, law, and public policy, as well as research from other fields that bears on these topics.   

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 this year’s conference is “Improving the U.S. Safety Net.” Keynote speakers and plenary panels will be oriented towards analysis of U.S. safety-net policies. We especially encourage submissions in line with this topic.

This year’s conference also includes 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. We particularly encourage submissions to this topic area as well.

As of September 20th, the conference will be virtual!  Click here to read a letter from NTA President Jim Alm, explaining the decision to go virtual.
