Tarcísio Diniz Magalhães is a postdoctoral research fellow at IBFD. He holds a doctoral and master’s degree in Law and Justice (Tax Law), both obtained at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), under full scholarships. He received his Bachelor of Laws with honours, under a partial scholarship, also from UFMG. During his PhD studies, he was granted full scholarships to conduct research at McGill University (H. Heward Stikeman Chair in the Law of Taxation), IBFD, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law) and Max Planck (Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance), and, during his graduating studies, he was a visiting student and international tax researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Before joining IBFD, he gained experience in litigation and consultancy at the Brazilian tax law firm Sacha Calmon – Misabel Derzi Consultores e Advogados, volunteered as a supervising attorney in tax cases at the UFMG Law Clinic and worked as a coordinator of strategic litigation in taxation and revenue at the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Minas Gerais. Mr Magalhães has also taught courses at the UFMG Faculty of Law and State Sciences in fields such as taxation, budget and public finance, economic analysis of law and public administration and governance. His publications include chapters, articles in academic journals and online magazines, technical reports and, more recently, a book in Portuguese entitled “Global Tax Governance: External Limitations on the Power to Tax (and Not to Tax) in Postmodernity”.

Since 2015, he has been an official member of the Permanent Commission on Review and Simplification of Tax Legislation of the State of Minas Gerais. Among his general areas of interest are national and international tax law and policy, tax reform, fiscal federalism, and his research is focused specifically on how the work of tax institutions and experts in diffusing global policy norms and standards relates to matters of legitimacy, participation and socio-economic development.
