Professor Steven A. Dean’s op-ed article on tax evasion was published in The National Law Journal
on September 11, 2006. In the article, he suggests a new direction in the fight against foreign tax havens by making the governments of the tax havens partners in the effort to crack down on tax evasion. Professor Dean wrote, "The United States alone loses $50 billion a year in tax revenues because its citizens and residents hide their money in offshore tax havens...sharing a fixed percentage of any part of the lost $50 billion that tax havens help them to recover...could simultaneously solve both the incentive and the resource problems that keep tax havens from fully cooperating with anti-tax evasion efforts.”
Professor Dean's teaching and scholarship concentrates on tax law and policy. Before joining the faculty of Brooklyn Law School in 2004, he was an associate at Debevoise & Plimpton and at Cravath, Swaine & Moore.Read more
