The UConn Tax Readings Group invites submissions of tax-focused working papers for review and discussion by our tax faculty and Ph.D. students. We encourage submission of papers that are early in the research process, but developed enough to benefit from our comments. We expect to discuss one or two papers each month. Following each meeting, we will provide a written summary of our discussion comments to the authors. Depending on submission volume, we may select only a limited number of papers for discussion.
We also periodically read papers to be presented at tax-specific conferences, or that one of our faculty members will be discussing at a conference.
Each meeting of the UConn Tax Readings Group includes several of the following participants:
- Amy Dunbar
- Frank Murphy
- George Plesko
- Steve Utke
- Dave Weber
- Sarah Parsons (Fifth-year Ph.D. student)
- Jenny Luchs (Third-year Ph.D. student)
- Trent Krupa (Second-year Ph.D. student)
Please see below for our prior and upcoming schedule of Tax Readings Group meetings. If you would like our comments on your working paper, please send your draft to Sarah Parsons.
