Taxes And Death: The Rise And Demise Of An American Law Firm, Milton C. Regan 2010 Georgetown University Law Center

Taxes And Death: The Rise And Demise Of An American Law Firm, Milton C. Regan

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Misconduct by lawyers in law firms is often attributed to pressures from increasing competition for legal services. Modern firms do face fierce competitive pressures. We can gain more subtle insights, however, by focusing on the specific markets in which particular firms operate and the ways in which forms of influence in law firms interact with common patterns of behavior in organizations.

This paper, a chapter in the collection Law Firms, Legal Culture, and Legal Practice, draws on this type of analytical framework to provide a case study of the experience of Jenkens & Gilchrist, a national law firm that had to ...

The Economy Of Undocumented Migration: Taxation And Access To Welfare, Mats Tjernberg 2009 Selected Works

The Economy Of Undocumented Migration: Taxation And Access To Welfare, Mats Tjernberg

Mats Tjernberg

A strict division between the formal economy and the informal economy cannot be made and every economic actor has in certain situations a propensity to engage in informal economic activities. The formal, as well as informal, economy may lead to economic growth which is essential for a broad welfare policy, under which social benefits are categorized. A person’s economic contribution to a state should entail some possibility of getting economic and social benefits from it. The article shows that a person, who is liable to tax in a state, by staying in its territory, should not be excluded from ...


Managing Fiscal Volatility By Redefining ‘Tax Cuts’ And ‘Tax Hikes’, David Gamage, Jeremy Bearer-Friend 2009 Berkeley Law

Managing Fiscal Volatility By Redefining ‘Tax Cuts’ And ‘Tax Hikes’, David Gamage, Jeremy Bearer-Friend

David Gamage

This report analyzes how states should cope with fiscal volatility at the level of institutional-design policy. We propose that states reconsider how they define terms like ‘‘tax cuts’’ and ‘‘tax hikes.’’ By adopting a new baseline for defining those terms, states can increase the likelihood of using tax rate adjustments to cope with fiscal volatility rather than more harmful spending fluctuations.


Comparative Income Taxation: A Structural Analysis, Hugh Ault, Brian Arnold 2009 Boston College Law School

Comparative Income Taxation: A Structural Analysis, Hugh Ault, Brian Arnold

Hugh J. Ault

The purpose of this book is to compare different solutions adopted by nine industrialized countries to common problems of income tax design. As in other legal domains, comparative study of income taxation can provide fresh perspectives from which to examine a particular national system. Increasing economic globalization also makes understanding foreign tax systems relevant to a growing set of transnational business transactions. Comparative study is, however, notoriously difficult. Full understanding of a foreign tax system may require mastery not only of a foreign language, but also of foreign business and legal cultures. It would be the work of a lifetime ...

Preserving Tax Exempt Status For Your Nonprofit Client, Timothy R. Tarvin

Timothy R Tarvin

In order to preserve a nonprofit’s tax-exempt status, counsel for the organization should stay current on how to appropriately file the IRS Form 990. Many American nonprofit organizations are at risk of losing their tax-exempt status due to changes in the tax code and filing deadlines. The Internal Revenue Service released a new version of the Form 990 in August of 2008, which became effective on December 31 the same year. This article tracks the changes on the form, as well as offers advice on who should file, when, and how. New tax law requires filing the Form 990 ...
