Assistant Professor Dan Lynch

Dan Lynch, an assistant professor of accounting at the Wisconsin School of Business, was a featured speaker at a conference sponsored by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the University of North Carolina Tax Center titled “Effects of Corporate and Business Provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The event gathered accounting, taxation, and economics experts to discuss the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, a move that included cutting the corporate tax rate down to 21%.

Lynch’s research examines the TCJA in relation to defined benefit pension contributions and explores whether the increase in pension contributions by firms was an unintended consequence of the Act’s corporate tax rate drop.
