Tax Chat! is an online series of conversations with persons active in the field of taxpayer rights and tax administration. Guests hail from many different disciplines and backgrounds. Audience participation in encouraged.
Our next Tax Chat! will be held on 12 January, 2021, at noon Eastern Standard Time (17:00 GMT and 18:00 CET). The topic for this upcoming Tax Chat! is Low Income Taxpayer Clinics and the momentum for establishing these programs internationally. Our guests for this conversation will be Keith Fogg of the Harvard Law School Federal Tax Clinic, Massachusetts, US; David Sams of The Community Tax Law Project in Virginia, US; Annette Morgan and Donovan Castelyn of Curtin Tax Clinic, Curtin University, Perth, Australia; David Massey and Amy Lawton of North West Tax Clinic at the University of Lancaster, England; and Emer Mulligan of the National University of Ireland Galway Student Tax Clinic. In this Tax Chat! we will discuss the various ways tax clinics advance access to justice for low income taxpayers with controversies before the tax authorities (or how to prevent those disputes), and the role tax clinics play in advocating for systemic change in protecting the rights of low income and other taxpayers. We’ll discuss the importance of clinical education and also providing opportunities for pro bono service by tax professionals, and we’ll chat about the challenges of establishing a clinic and securing funding.
