Why Civil Rights Lawyers Should Study Tax, Stephen B. Cohen, Laura Sager

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This Article discusses the intersection of civil rights law and income taxation in the three areas listed above: damages for unlawful discrimination, the forgiveness of debt by a predatory lender, and tax-exempt status for private educational and religious institutions. Our purpose is not to attempt an exhaustive examination of the issues in each area but to convey a sense of the range of tax problems that civil rights lawyers may need to confront.
