Assistant Professor Isabelle Cohen’s Research on Improving Tax Compliance in Uganda Cited in J-PAL

Assistant Professor Isabelle Cohen’s research on tax compliance in Uganda was cited in a recent J-PAL policy insight brief, entitled “Improving Tax Compliance through Reminder Messages for Taxpayers.” Isabelle’s dissertation research in Uganda shows how low-cost, easily implementable text messages sent near tax-time can increase tax compliance substantially. This work has received media coverage elsewhere this year and recently received honorable mention for the 2022 APPAM PhD Dissertation Award.
