The University of North Carolina's Sixteenth Annual Tax Symposium

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, January 25 & 26, 2013

The University of North Carolina is organizing its sixteenth annual symposium designed to bring together leading tax scholars from economics, accounting, finance, law, political science, and related fields. The symposium will be held in Chapel Hill on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, January 25 & 26, 2013, and will be sponsored by the KPMG Foundation and the UNC Tax Center. The goal is to bring together scholars from different areas who share a common interest in current tax research. Previous conferences have been very successful, and we anticipate the same this year.

PAPER DETAILS: Papers should be well developed, but at a stage where they can still benefit from the group's discussion. The symposium will include six to seven papers. Travel and lodging expenses for presenters will be reimbursed up to $500.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Please submit an electronic version of the paper no later than November 9, 2012 to Professor Douglas Shackelford, Email

Paper selection will be finalized by December 7, 2012.
