Tax Movie Night! To Pay or Not To Pay: Tax Dilemmas in Sitcoms (Thurs., Mar. 28, 6:30 PM)

This Thursday, March 28, from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM, please join us for the 4th Annual NYU Tax Movie Night! This year’s event is titled “To Pay or Not To Pay: Tax Dilemmas in Sitcoms.”  We will screen four classic television episodes, spanning different decades, where major characters are faced with tax compliance choices.  Some characters choose to report their tax liabilities honestly and others do not.  The episodes featured are from “The Honeymooners” (1956), “The Phil Silvers Show” (1956), “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (1975) and “The Simpsons” (1998).  Professor Lawrence Zelenak from Duke Law School will join us as a special guest speaker and will lead a discussion on what popular culture can teach us about public attitudes toward tax compliance.  Refreshments, including popcorn, will be served.

We should have plenty of space, but we would like to get a sense of how much food to order.  To RSVP, please click here .
