    Kirk J. Stark

    Kirk Stark teaches Federal Income Taxation, Taxation & Distributive Justice, Financing State and Local Government, and the first-year Property course. In addition, he serves as faculty coordinator of the UCLA Colloquium on Tax Policy & Public Finance, an interdisciplinary workshop designed to explore leading research on taxation. Professor Stark was elected Professor of the Year by the law school graduating classes of 1999 and 2002. In 2003, he received the University Distinguished Teaching Award.
    Professor Stark writes in the areas of tax policy and public finance. His recent book War and Taxes (with Steve Bank and Joe Thorndike) offers a political history of U.S. tax policy during wartime. Much of Professor Stark’s scholarship has examined the American system of &"fiscal federalism” and considers how best to allocate fiscal responsibilities among federal, state and local governments. He was recently selected as a research fellow for the UCLA Center for American Politics and Public Policy for his project Rich States, Poor States: American Federalism and the Politics of Fiscal Equalization. The study examines fiscal disparities among the U.S. states and considers whether the federal government should adopt a Canadian-style system of equalization grants to alleviate those disparities. Professor Stark is also the co-author of two leading casebooks in the areas of federal and state taxation.
    Professor Stark serves on the Board of Directors of the National Tax Association, a nonpartisan organization founded in 1907 to promote the study of tax policy and public finance. During the fall semester of 2008, he will be a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.

    Joseph Bankman

    A leading scholar in the field of tax law, Joseph Bankman is the author of two widely used casebooks on the subject. His writings on tax policy cover topics such as progressivity, consumption tax, and the role of tax in the structure of Silicon Valley start-ups. He has gained wide attention for his work on how government might control the use of tax shelters and has testified before Congress and other legislative bodies on tax compliance problems posed by the cash economy. He has written and spoken extensively on how we might use technology to simplify filing. He also worked with the State of California to co-author a bill creating ReadyReturn—a completed tax return prepared by the state.
