Call for Papers:
The IRS has issued a call for papers for the 2012 IRS Research Conference in June or July 2012 in Washington, D.C.:
We invite you to propose a research paper on a tax administration topic for the 2012 Conference. General areas of interest include measuring and influencing taxpayer compliance, estimating taxpayer compliance costs (burden), tax complexity, improving tax administration (e.g., through service, enforcement, systems, third parties, changing the tax law or regulations, etc.), and understanding the nature and behavior of the taxpayer population. For more information about this conference, including previous conference programs and papers, visit the Web site shown above, and click on the links to previous conferences.
Proposals are welcome from government and non-government researchers from the U.S. and abroad. One author per paper will receive funding for travel and those who are not government employees (or government contractors) also will receive honoraria.
Completed papers will be due in May. A conference proceedings volume will be published containing all of the papers presented at the conference. Authors will have until August to revise and resubmit a final draft of their paper for publication. The deadline for proposals is December 1, 2011.
Please e-mail your submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “proposed paper” in the subject line.
