The School of Law at New York University (NYU Law) has launched a new center which aims to protect and strengthen the US tax system through rigorous, high-impact legal work in the public interest.

The Tax Law Center at NYU Law will focus on tax law issues that have profound implications for the government, businesses, and individuals. The center’s work will include offering technical input on tax legislation, submitting comments on tax regulations, and intervening in tax litigation, with the goals of protecting and improving the integrity of the tax system, saving and raising revenues, and advancing equity.

The center’s founding faculty directors are Robert C. Kopple Family Professor of Taxation Lily Batchelder and Professor David Kamin (currently on public service leave), each bring estimable credentials from their work in tax policy. Chye-Ching Huang, who spent a decade at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a think tank in Washington, DC, is the center’s founding executive director.
