Potential Penalties And Ethical Problems In Filing An Amended Return: The Case Of The Repentant Sports/Entertainment Figure's Legal Expenses Deduction, John R. Dorocak 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Potential Penalties And Ethical Problems In Filing An Amended Return: The Case Of The Repentant Sports/Entertainment Figure's Legal Expenses Deduction, John R. Dorocak

Maine Law Review

A prominent sports/entertainment figure walks into your office (all preparers should be so lucky). He is in a repentant mood--not because he escaped conviction for the murder of his former wife and her friend, but because he deducted his legal expenses in defending against the criminal prosecution and the civil wrongful death suit. This Article discusses the obligation of the taxpayer, even one as nefarious as the athlete posited, and the practitioner to file an amended return. As one pair of commentators has stated, “How should the amendment be made, and what are the possible consequences of amending a ...


What's A Government Good For? Fiscal Policy In An Age Of Inequalituy, Edward D. Kleinbard 2018 University of Southern California

What's A Government Good For? Fiscal Policy In An Age Of Inequalituy, Edward D. Kleinbard

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

The debate surrounding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act demonstrated the intellectual bankruptcy of U.S. fiscal policy debate. The TCJA has serious flaws as a matter of narrow tax policy, but it is more fundamentally flawed when viewed through the proper policy lens, which is overall fiscal policy – the net of government taxing and spending. The TCJA greatly exacerbates already untenable budget deficits. Its tax prescriptions are even more regressive when the spending cuts contemplated by the legislation itself are reflected. And the law’s regressivity is compounded further when plausible financing paths for these large deficits are included ...

Perversion Of The Tax Policymaking Process, Edward D. Kleinbard 2018 University of Southern California

Perversion Of The Tax Policymaking Process, Edward D. Kleinbard

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act can be criticized on many substantive grounds, and for its effect on deficits. But the legislative process also revealed important shortcomings beyond its haste. Traditional tax policy metrics – conventional revenue estimates, dynamic estimates and distributional analyses – yield misleading results in a tax framework that loses over one trillion dollars. The result is that the legislation has even more deleterious welfare implications than these standard metrics suggest.

In this article, we respond to Professor Zelinsky’s criticism of our arguments regarding the constitutionality of New York’s tax residence rule. We argue that the Supreme Court’s decision in Wynne requires reconsideration of the New York Court of Appeal’s decision in Tamagni.


Cracking Shells: The Panama Papers & Looking To The European Union's Anti-Money Laundering Directive As A Framework For Implementing A Multilateral Agreement To Combat The Harmful Effects Of Shell Companies, Nicholas Vail 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

Cracking Shells: The Panama Papers & Looking To The European Union's Anti-Money Laundering Directive As A Framework For Implementing A Multilateral Agreement To Combat The Harmful Effects Of Shell Companies, Nicholas Vail

Texas A&M Law Review

In early 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists released a report detailing thousands of leaked documents demonstrating how a Panamanian law firm had, for years, helped wealthy clients conceal their financial activities through the use of offshore shell companies. The Panama Papers, as the leaked documents came to be known, directed renewed attention at the use of shell companies. Shell companies are used by the world’s wealthy and powerful to lower their taxes, but are also used by tax evaders, criminal organizations, and terrorists. While much of the renewed attention has been directed at offshore tax havens such ...

On The Disparate Treatment Of Business And Personal Salt Payments, Michael S. Knoll 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School

On The Disparate Treatment Of Business And Personal Salt Payments, Michael S. Knoll

Faculty Scholarship

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1, would eliminate the federal income tax deduction for nonbusiness state and local taxes while maintaining the deduction for business state and local taxes. That disparate treatment has generated a storm of negative commentary. In this short essay, I consider whether the federal tax law should allow a deduction for business state and local taxes assuming that there is no deduction for nonbusiness state and local taxes. I argue that investors and businesses, including pass-through businesses, should be allowed to deduct state and local property and sales taxes, but not general income ...
