NYU Hosts 4th Annual Tax Controversy Forum Today
NYU Hosts its 4th Annual Tax Controversy Forum today:
The NYU Tax Controversy Forum brings together representatives from the government and expert private practitioners to compare perspectives on a wide range of topics involving federal tax audits, appeals, and litigation. Coverage encompasses a broad scope of controversy work, from international issues to ethical problems, sensitive audits, and various tax penalties.
William J. Wilkins (IRS Chief Counsel) delivers the keynote address on Tax Administration Priorities from the Office of Chief Counsel. Another highlight is the panel on Is The IRS Always Right? Judicial Deference To Treasury Regulations and Other IRS Positions:
The Supreme Court recently held that Treasury Regulations are subject to the same standard of administrative review as regulations promulgated by other agencies. This panel discusses the deference that courts must now give to Treasury Regulations and other IRS positions, such as Revenue Rulings and litigating positions, and explains what tax practitioners need to know about the Administrative Procedure Act. The panel also discusses Home Concrete vs. United States, a recent decision from the Supreme Court.
- Thomas A. Cullinan (Partner, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, Atlanta)
- Kristin E. Hickman (Professor of Law, University of Minnesota Law School)
- Mark V. Holmes (Judge, U.S. Tax Court)
- Gilbert S. Rothenberg (Chief, Appellate Section, U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division)
