This discussion reflects on the state and future of empirical tax research in accounting, complementing and extending Shackelford and Shevlin (2000). Specifically, this discussion 1) examines the scope Shackelford and Shevlin (2000), 2) discusses what I view to be the main contributions and limitations in the extant tax research, and 3) charts several directions for future research.
