Abstract

In this article, the authors explore how artificial intelligence could be used to automatically find tax minimization strategies in the tax law. Congress or Treasury could then proactively shut down such strategies. But, if large accounting or law firms develop the technology first, the result could be a huge, silent hit to the treasury.
