The US National Tax Association is planning to hold its 114th Annual Conference on Taxation in person on November 18-20, 2021 should health guidelines permit. The conference will cover a broad range of topics in tax policy and public finance. The conference committee welcomes submissions from the fields of accounting, economics, law, and public policy, as well as research from other fields that bears on these topics.

Motivated by the important role of public assistance programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and by the discussions of policy reform occurring during the early days of the Biden administration, the theme of this year’s conference is “Improving the US Safety Net.” Keynote speakers and plenary panels will be oriented towards analysis of US safety-net policies.

This year’s conference also includes a new submission category, Inequality and Disparities, for papers that investigate disparities by characteristics such as race or gender as well as the effects of tax or non-tax policies that are intended to alleviate them.

Submission deadline is May 31, 2021. Decisions concerning the inclusion of papers and sessions will be announced in late July 2021. All presenters, including members of panel discussions, must then register and pay a conference registration fee.
