Professors of law, accounting, and economics from various universities work as a part of the Joint Committee staff for limited periods or on special projects. The experience provides those in academia an opportunity to work on cutting edge tax issues and to gain invaluable insight into the tax legislative process. These talented individuals provide an additional perspective on issues that is beneficial to the work of the Joint Committee staff.

These individuals work with Joint Committee staff and gain exposure to all aspects of the tax legislative process.
