The literature on the lawyers of films and television has focused on one segment of the legal profession - litigators. But in a few shining instances, tax lawyers have had their turn on movie and television screens. Those rare moments reveal much about the place of tax law and tax lawyers in American Culture. The article discusses the movies "Can't Stop the Music" and "The Firm" and the television series "L.A. Law."

Keywords: taxes, tax law, tax lawyers, movies, television, "The Firm", "L.A. Law", "Can't Stop the Music"
