In this presentation, Professors Kirk Stark and Darien Shanske will briefly summarize some of the recent changes to federal tax law as they impact California, including first impressions of its distributional effects.  They will then analyze various policy responses, with particular emphasis on responding to the capping of the State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction and major changes to the federal taxation of multinational corporations.

Professor Kirk Stark (UCLA) is the Barrall Family Professor of Tax Law and Policy in the School of Stark PhotoLaw.  Professor Stark’s research focuses on taxation and public finance, with an emphasis on state and local tax policy and U.S. fiscal federalism. His work has examined fiscal disparities among the states, the federal government’s role in state tax reform, and the question of how best to allocate fiscal responsibilities among federal, state and local governments. Stark is a co-author of War and Taxes, a political history of U.S. tax policy during wartime, as well as two leading casebooks, Federal Income Taxation and State and Local Taxation. Professor Stark regularly testifies on state and local tax policy before the California state legislature and has also served on the Board of Directors of the National Tax Association. In 2008, he was a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, and he served as Vice Dean for Faculty Development at UCLA School of Law from 2010-2013.

Professor Darien Shanske (UC Davis) is Professor of Law and Political Science. Professor Shanske’s academic interests include taxation, particularly state and local taxation, local government law, public finance and political theory. He regularly testifies on state and local tax and government issues before the California state legislature. Shanske is a co-author of the only commentary on the California State Constitution and was the primary drafter of the sections relating to state and local government and finance.
