On September 1 and 2, 2016, ZEW shall be hosting the fifth Mannheim Workshop on Empirical Tax Research.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from the field of corporate taxation, and to initiate the presentation and discussion of latest research findings. We encourage the submission of papers which address questions regarding the effects of taxation decisions on businesses, on personnel or on other market participants, on the basis of empirical research methods. The workshop benefits from the diversity of data and methods used. We therefore also welcome papers which make use of data from sources such as surveys, experiments, or secondary data gained from annual financial statements or taxation figures for empirical investigation.

The workshop will be held in German.
