The Virginia Tax Review (VTR) is one of the oldest student-run law journals at the University of Virginia, and the only journal to deal exclusively with tax and corporate topics. VTR publishes three times annually. The journal is devoted to matters related to federal taxation.
The Virginia Tax Review was founded in the Spring of 1980 by George Howell and Donald Delson, and the first issue was published in the Spring of 1981. VTR received its initial funding from Mortimer Caplin, an alumnus of the University of Virginia, who was Commissioner of Internal Revenue during the Kennedy administration and founder of the firm of Caplin and Drysdale.
The Virginia Tax Review currently ranks among the top forty of all specialty journals, and routinely publishes authors from top-ten law schools. It is also the one of the top-ranked tax law journals based on a combined score of impact, case cites, journal cites, cites/cost and currency factors. It complements the University of Virginia's top-ranked curriculum in tax law.
