"Do Analysts Add Information to Management Forecasts? Evidence from Effective Tax Rate Forecasts"
In the setting of effective tax rate (ETR) forecasts, I compare analyst forecasts that copy managers’ voluntarily-issued ETR forecasts to analyst forecasts that disagree (and therefore potentially add information). My study indicates that analysts can be overconfident about their private information and underweight management information, resulting in less informative forecasts.

"Analyst Inattention, Transitory Tax Items, and Non-GAAP Earnings" with Dain Donelson and Lillian Mills [SSRN]
We examine analysts' ability to identify transitory tax items and the role of manager-provided non-GAAP earnings in this identification process. We find evidence that analysts’ forecast errors are significantly associated with transitory tax items as if analysts display limited attention and processing power.
