Abstract

This short review piece examines Professor Tessa Davis's article in the Kentucky Law Journal called "Freezing the Future". Davis's piece explores the tax consequences of elective egg freezing and the discriminatory age and gender concerns associated with those tax consequences. Ultimately, Davis's piece gives us a fresh lens through which to think about tax as it plays out in the real world, and the way that the facially neutral tax code has meaningfully different impacts on certain groups of people.
