D.C.-based tax policy reporter
Kat is a reporter for Tax Notes Today, one of the trade publications for Tax Analysts. She covers the IRS, tax policy and other topics related to federal tax administration.
She previously wrote for the Current Newspapers, a group of neighborhood weeklies in Northwest Washington, D.C., covering mostly real estate, new businesses and other topics impacting urban development. She also immersed herself in data journalism, writing about campaign finance, lobbying and Internet policy as a reporting fellow for the Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group. Other publications she has written for include DCist, Eater DC, Washington Diplomat, Washingtonian, Elevation DC and Washington Post Express.
Her past life included graduate school, market research, political research and campaigns, lots of political science courses (with a drizzle of economics), and a college newsroom inside an eerily beautiful gothic building that was torn down to expand an "L" station. (Guess where she's from...)
