This panel will explore current research on the use of penalties and general anti-avoidance rules (GAAR) in tax administration from the perspectives of legal and economic theory and taxpayer behavior. What types of penalties and initiatives are effective deterrents of noncompliance? Do automatic or strict liability penalties deter or increase noncompliance? What safeguards should be in place before a penalty or GAAR is imposed or applied? With respect to what penalties should the tax agency bear the burden of proof for justifying penalty imposition? How does penalty administration affect taxpayers’ trust in the tax system?
