LAW 778 - Tax Policy Seminar
The seminar will first examine the principal criteria used in deciding tax policy: equity, efficiency, administrability, and simplicity. Using these criteria, the seminar will then consider a number of current issues including the following: should our progressive tax system be replaced by a flat tax or should it be made more progressive; should the ¿marriage penalty¿ be repealed, and if so, how; should gifts and personal injury awards be taxed; should capital gains be taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income; should the current income tax be replaced with a value added tax or a tax on consumption; and any other issue or issues the class wishes to explore. A paper will be required.
