Professor Anthony Infanti was part of a panel of academic experts at the ABA Tax Section meeting in Denver, Colorado. The panel, titled "Critical Tax Theory: The Impact of the Tax Code on Traditionally Subordinated Groups," explored some of the various tax reform initiatives that have recently garnered public attention. In particular, the panel discussed possible inequities in the current tax system as it is applied to traditionally underrepresented groups, including gay taxpayers, undocumented residents, the working poor, and disabled individuals. Panelists introduced how critical tax and an analysis of race and tax presented a diverse viewpoint on current tax reform issues. Along with the discussion, the Tax Section Diversity committee convened a task force to address legislative and regulatory solutions to the issues discussed.
