Advanced Topics in Tax Research

The objective of this course is to enhance your ability to critically evaluate and conduct empirical tax accounting research. This course is also intended to expand your understanding of the interactions between income taxes, financial reporting, and external stakeholders, such as investors, analysts, external auditors, and governmental regulators. In addition to introducing you to tax research that overlaps with research in financial and managerial accounting, corporate finance, and economics, this course should also help you develop:

  1. An appreciation for the role of theory in applied work.
  2. An understanding of research designs commonly used in accounting and finance.
  3. The skills necessary to design and conduct empirical research.
  4. Skills to identify research projects with potential for publication in premier journals.

To achieve these objectives we will read and discuss seminal and recent archival tax research.
