The eight edition of the Annual MannheimTaxation Conference will take place on 9 and 10 September 2021 as a virtual event. We invite submissions on any topics broadly related to tax research, including papers from economics, accounting, law, political science, and interdisciplinary contributions. The conference focuses particularly on applied and empirical papers related to business taxation, tax avoidance and evasion, behavioural responses to taxation, tax harmonization in the European Union, political economy of taxation, international taxation, and tax law.

We are happy to announce that Florian Scheuer (University of Zurich) and Wolfgang Schön (Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance, Munich) will be this year’s keynote speakers. The conference is organised by the Leibniz ScienceCampus MannheimTaxation, which is a joint initiative of the University of Mannheim and ZEW Mannheim. MannheimTaxation aims to foster high-quality research in the broad field of taxation and provides a platform that brings together researchers from various tax disciplines.
