2018 Taxation Theory Conference

Call for Papers

The fourth Taxation Theory Conference will be held at Washington University in St. Louis on July 13-14, 2018.

The following people have already agreed to give keynote talks:
Alessandro Pavan (Northwestern University)
Stefanie Stantcheva (Harvard University)

The conference organizers are:
Marcus Berliant (Washington University in St. Louis)
Craig Brett (Mount Allison University)
Maxim Troshkin (Cornell University)


The organizers invite submissions of papers that deal with taxation theory. Papers may be either normative or positive (e.g., political economy). Empirical papers will be considered provided that the empirical analysis makes essential use of a theoretical model. Preference will be given to complete manuscripts, but extended abstracts (approximately two pages) will also be considered.  Partial or full reimbursement of presenters’ travel expenses will be available, contingent on the overall budget constraint.

Submissions close on February 15, 2018.

The program will be announced by mid-March.  Feel free to circulate this document.
