Professor Ventry Speaks at New York Law School Conference

Professor Dennis Ventry presented "The Tax Treatment of Personal Interest under the U.S. Net Income Tax" at New York Law School on October 4.

The event, "The 100th Anniversary of the Revenue Act of 1913: Marking a Century of Income Tax Law in the United States," was sponsored by the New York Law School Law Review and attended by academics, federal government officials, and private practitioners. Professor Ventry focused his comments on the treatment of consumer debt under the federal income tax from 1913 to the present, with an emphasis on household debt (including home mortgages, revolving credit, auto loans, and student loans), and whether interest payments on such debt should be deductible from personal income taxes. 

Professor Ventry is an expert in tax policy and legal ethics. His research interests include tax expenditure analysis, family taxation, professional responsibility and standards of care, tax filing and administration, tax compliance, public finance, and tax and legal history. In addition, he was recently added as a co-author on the casebook, Legal Ethics and Corporate Practice.
