Race, Class, and Gender Essentialism in Tax Literature: The Joint Return

48 Pages Posted: 12 Apr 2014

Abstract

The current literature discussing the federal tax laws' gender bias ignores all racial differences among women. Even the few authors who have acknowledged class distinctions similarly ignore racial differences among women. This Article demonstrates how the literature's gender essentialism masks the bias in the federal tax laws based upon race, class, and gender in ways previously ignored.
