The sixth edition of the Annual MannheimTaxation Conference will take place in Mannheim (Germany) on 12–13 September 2019. 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 very happy to announce that Alan Auerbach (UC Berkeley) and Jake Thornock(Brigham Young University) 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 the ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research. MaTax aims to foster high-quality research in the broad field of taxation and provides a platform to bring together researchers from various tax disciplines.
