Manuscript preparation, submission, and correspondence

Submissions to the NTJ should not exceed 50 double-spaced pages, including tables, figures, footnotes, references, and appendices, and should include an abstract of 100 or fewer words and a list of keywords and JEL classification codes.

All submitted manuscripts must include a conflict of interest disclosure. All new manuscripts must be submitted online at as a single PDF.

In preparing papers for the Journal, authors should bear in mind the diverse membership of the NTA, which includes academic, private-sector, and government economists, accountants and attorneys, as well as business and government tax practitioners—and write in a style accessible to all these individuals. Technical and methodological discussions should be kept to a minimum and placed in an appendix as appropriate. Authors may note in their paper that additional information regarding their methods and results is available upon request or online.

Material previously published or scheduled or submitted for publication elsewhere will not be considered by the NTJ.

Manuscripts accepted for publication must conform to the NTJ Style Guidelines.


All correspondence may be sent electronically to
