While the primary goal of our federal income tax system is to raise revenue to support our federal government, it also includes explicit and implicit incentives and disincentives that privilege or undermine certain categories of taxpayers. In addition, our tax systems increasingly deliver significant and varied social benefits that include, without limitation, subsidies for higher education, alternative energy, healthcare coverage, and work for lower-income families with children. This one-week seminar will explore five different broad categories of taxpayer groups including three that will be selected by the law students who elect to participate in this seminar.
