117th Annual Conference Call for Papers Now Open

November 14 – 16, 2024
Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center
Detroit, MI

The Call for Papers has closed, but you can still volunteer to be session chair or discussant.

The 117th 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. 

New this year! Session participants can submit their own paper abstracts and co-authors (they will receive email directions explaining how to submit) OR have the submitter gather contact details/co-author info/abstracts ahead of time and submit all paper details on behalf of the group.  Regardless of which approach is taken, sessions/submissions are not considered complete and submitted until all abstracts are submitted.

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 July 8, 2024

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 has closed.
