Maureen Bridget Cavanaugh
January 7 1955 - April 4 2005

Powerpoint Slides from August 15, 2002 - 2:12PM Created by Professor Cavanaugh for her class on Taxation Law and History


Professor Cavanaugh always enjoyed inserting humor to make a point. She had comics posted all over her office and home. DILBERT: Then our new CEO backed up a moving van to the building and robbed us. At first we thought he was breaking the law, but he had a written opinion from his tax lawyer saying it was probably okay. DOGBERT: What did the Board of Directors do? DILBERT: After loading the van?


Don't be silly, Mr. Bovee. We don't do that. These days we switched over almost entirely to LOW-VOLTAGE Cattle Prods.


Have you made the ends meet yet, Dad?


Although taxes were her area of expertise she was brutally honest about taxes being unpleasant for the taxpayer. "Tax is endless, mind-numbing details." - M. Cavanaugh


Professor Cavanaugh was deeply concerned on the philosophical and societal implications of taxes. "Tax is ultimately complicated because life, rest of law is complicated." - M. Cavanaugh


Look. You had five bones, right. Your friend Zooky comes over, stays a while, then leaves. Now you have four bones, right?... You don't have to be 'Lassie' to figure this one out.


Professor Cavanaugh made sure her students realized the hidden issues of taxation. "Tax not just economic issue." "Tax burden ultimately asks: What type of society do we want to have? What is consistent with our political values?" - M. Cavanaugh


Mr. Osbourne, may I be excused? My brain is full.
