On November 18, 2015 McGill Professor Allison Christians spoke at the Taxpayer Advocate Tax Conference in Washington, DC.* On November 20, 2015 a video of an interview with her was posted here at the Isaac Brock Society. It was an excellent interview which highlighted and demonstrated some of the injustices of U.S. ‘place of birth taxation”. The interview was also posted on the IBS YouTube channel.
Now, TaxNotes has made the text of her speech available for general reading.
