Editors' Special Tax Contribution Award – Kimberley Clausing; Reuven-Avi Yonah

The editors' award, for the firm or individual that made a specific impact on the practice of tax, went to two academics who devised a system of formulary apportionment for the US corporate tax system. The Hamilton Project, sponsored by the Brookings Institution, published their idea in the summer of 2007.
