Supreme Court in PPL Endorsed Position of Econ Profs, Not Tax Profs

United States Supreme CourtThe Supreme Court's unanimous decision in favor the taxpayers in PPL Corp. v. Commissioner, No. 12-43 (U.S. May 20, 2013), endorsed the argument made in an amicus brief filed by a number of leading economics professors (Rosanne Altshuler (Rutgers), Richard Bird (Toronto), Malcom Gillis (Rice), Arnold Harberger (UCLA), Gary Hufbauer (Georgetown), Charles McLure (Stanford), Jack Mintz (Calgary), and George Zodorow (Rice)) and rejected the position in an amicus brief filed by a number of leading tax professors (Anne Alstott (Yale), Marvin Chirelstein (Columbia), Mihir Desai (Harvard), Michael Graetz (Columbia), Daniel Halperin (Harvard), Mitchell Kane (NYU), Lawrence Lokken (Florida), Robert Peroni (Texas), and Alvin Warren (Harvard)). For commentary on the decision by Reuven Avi-Yonah (Michigan) and Allison Christians (McGill), see here.
