Kat Lucero


Kat Lucero is a tax reporter for Bloomberg BNA, where she covers the nuts and bolts of the Internal Revenue Service.

She comes from The Hill Extra, where she focused on the GOP’s bid to overhaul the Affordable Care Act after Donald Trump’s rise to the White House and the Senate’s fight over the confirmation of former Rep. Tom Price as Health and Human Services secretary. She also interviewed Dr. Zeke Emanuel, the chief architect of the ACA, on his work with the Trump administration and wrote about the proposed border adjustment tax’s impact on American drug companies.

Kat first got the tax bug at Tax Analysts, where she followed Congress and the IRS. She also covered real estate and development for the Northwest Current, investigated the intersection of money and influence for the Sunlight Foundation, and freelanced as a restaurant/food writer. She is a graduate of Georgetown University and DePaul University.
