2012 NYU/UCLA Tax Conference


“The Internal Revenue Code at 100” conference will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the income tax in the United States. Participants will consider the evolution of the American income tax over the past century and will consider prospects for tax reform as the income tax begins its second century. The conference will feature panels on business taxation, international taxation, inequality and taxation and politics.

The NYU/UCLA Tax Policy Conference hosted by NYU School of Law and UCLA School of Law is a joint annual conference focusing on tax policy issues from both a legal and economic perspective. It provides a forum in which leading scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners can analyze complex tax policy questions and options for reform and brings together members of both NYU Law’s tax law faculty and UCLA Law’s business law and policy program. It builds on tax policy symposia that have historically been hosted by the Tax Law Review, the premier law school journal for tax policy scholarship published at NYU School of Law, and the UCLA Colloquium on Tax Policy and Public Finance, started in 2004.
