  • Taxpayer Rights: To What End (Part 1). In 2014, IRS adopted a taxpayer bill of rights and in 2015 Congress codified those rights by requiring that the Commissioner ensure that IRS employees are familiar with and act in accord with those rights. IRC § 7803(a)(3). In this panel, we will examine the use of the taxpayer bill of rights (TBOR) in tax controversies generally, as well as consider its application in the context of recent high-profile litigation between Facebook and the IRS, the application of similar legislation in state controversies, and the implications of the absence of a specific remedy associated with rights violations. This is the first of a two-part panel and is cosponsored by the Tax Clinics and Pro Bono Committee and the Individual & Family Tax Committee.

  • Nudging and Educating Taxpayers to Comply: Reevaluating Traditional Approaches to Taxpayer Compliance. Traditional approaches to ensuring tax compliance have largely assumed that taxpayers make rational economic decisions based on sanctions and likelihood of detection in deciding whether to comply. Recently, there has been increased attention toward wider range of behavioral factors that may contribute to tax compliance. In this panel, we will explore (i) the theoretical background for these more recent insights, (ii) government efforts to test these insights, including a recent Taxpayer Advocate Service study that examines whether written communications with taxpayers improved subsequent compliance with the earned income tax credit (EITC), and (iii) scholarship that suggests that the government should supplement traditional compliance measures with approaches that apply insights from the field of behavioral economics. Moderator: Lany L. Villalobos, Law Clerk, US Tax Court, Washington, DC Panelists: Dave Williams, Intuit, San Diego, CA; Jeff Wilson, Senior Advisor, IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service, Indianapolis, IN; Professor Leslie Book, Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law, Villanova, PA; Emily Schmitt, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, DC
