CBS Tax Seminar 2 "Hot off the press" Taxation, History, Theory, Law and Administration by Parthasarathi Shome

Event Description

Seminar 2 – Taxation, History, Theory, Law and Administration by Parthasarathi Shome

Convener: Yvette Lind, Assistant professor in tax law at Copenhagen Business School

Excerpting one area of focus from his new book, the author will discuss the ramifications of taxation for inequality in different aspects. His book, published by Springer Texts in Business and Economics, 2021, is a continuum through various branches of taxation history, economic theory, law, prevailing worldwide taxes, international taxation and tax avoidance, and tax administration, and Partho Shome will speak mainly on the particular aspect of equality in, and through, taxation. He will cover the theoretical concern with equality in taxation, the characteristics that address equality in actual tax codes, the history of international taxation including the latest discussions on a global minimum tax so that tax revenues are beneficially shared across nations, and the principle of equal treatment of taxpayers by the tax administration.
