116th Annual Conference Call for Papers

November 1- 4, 2023
Grand Hyatt Denver
Denver, Colorado

The 116th 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 and administration, as well as research from other fields or by practitioners that relates to these topics.   

We especially welcome submissions that can speak to current challenges facing policymakers such as the effect of digitalization/e-commerce/remote work on public finances, minimum taxes and international tax law, the child tax credit and other family policies, and global challenges to government finances.  

You are invited to submit the following: individual papers to be integrated into sessions, proposals for complete sessions of papers, and proposals for panel discussions (roundtable format, just speakers, no papers). Please note that full session proposals are mere suggestions of groupings. The conference committee reserves the right to consider and accept individual papers from a complete session rather than accepting the complete session, break apart complete sessions or otherwise change the full session. 

Submitters of complete sessions are required to a) enter abstracts for each paper in the session OR b) let the paper presenters know that they will receive an email from the abstract system, telling them to upload the abstract into the system. The session is not considered complete and submitted until all abstracts are submitted.

The submission deadline is May 31, 2023.  Decisions concerning the inclusion of papers and sessions will be announced in late August 2023.  All presenters, including members of panel discussions, discussants and session chairs, must then register and pay a conference registration fee to attend and present.

You are also invited to volunteer to be a discussant or a session chair.  Decisions concerning discussants and session chairs will be in early Fall, as the agenda is taking shape. All discussants and session chairs must register and pay a conference registration fee. The deadline to apply to be a chair or discussant is September 25, 2023.

Graduate students are invited to submit in any category (single papers, complete sessions, and panel discussions) and volunteer to be a discussant or session chair. In addition, graduate students may submit single papers for consideration for the NTA Next Generation Session and posters for consideration for the Graduate Student Research Forum. The NTA Next Generation Session consists entirely of graduate student papers. The Graduate Student Research Forum is a poster session that allows students to present their research one-on-one and in a small group setting. The deadline for the Next Generation Session and the Graduate Student Research Forum submissions is June 30, 2023.
