  • Chair: Roger Royse, Royse Law Firm, Menlo Park, CA
  • Taxing R2-D2: How Should We Think About the Taxation of Robots and AI? The future is coming, with increased automation and artificial intelligence affecting many industry sectors, from transportation to medicine to legal services. While it is possible that these developments will result in enhanced productivity, they may also lead to fewer jobs for humans and decreasing reliance on human labor. It is a tax policy maxim that it is inefficient for taxation to interfere with business decisions. But what are the implications of automation for a tax system that primarily relies on labor taxation and is increasingly reducing the taxation of capital? Jurisdictions in the United States and around the world are considering proposals to tax robots in order to slow the advance of automation while providing funds for displaced workers. Should robots and machines be taxed, in order to preserve human jobs? If so, how should such taxes be designed, and what problems might they create? This panel addresses these timely questions. Moderator: Professor Leandra Lederman, Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Bloomington, IN Panelists: Robert J. Kovacev, Steptoe & Johnson LLP, Washington, DC; Professor Roberta Mann, University of Oregon School of Law, Eugene, OR; Professor Shu-Yi Oei, Boston College Law School, Newton, MA
