This article is a response to some of the politically aggressive rhetoric contained in a recent symposium issue on tax rates, progressivity, and budget processes published by the Boston College Law Review. The article identifies possible sources of personal and political bias in tax policy scholarship and suggests that scholars should seek neutral, noninflammatory means to analyze the rights and duties of wealthy taxpayers under the Internal Revenue Code.
