Getting A Handle On The Taxation Of Sports Betting, Samuel Craig Dec 2023

Getting A Handle On The Taxation Of Sports Betting, Samuel Craig

Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review

Sports betting is not merely a 21st century novelty; however, recent legislative and societal changes have allowed sports betting to bloom into a widespread phenomenon in America. The rapid emergence of sports betting in American life has caused states to react with legislation ranging from full-stop bans to partnerships with sportsbooks to capitalize on this lucrative and newly legal activity. While plenty of discussion can be found regarding the social and political considerations of legalizing gambling and related activities, no comprehensive legal scholarship has focused specifically on the taxation of sports betting. Sports betting exists in a relatively unique position …


Alternatives To California’S Sb 27: Incentivizing The Release Of Tax Returns Without Restricting Ballot Access, Matthew Tang Nov 2020

Alternatives To California’S Sb 27: Incentivizing The Release Of Tax Returns Without Restricting Ballot Access, Matthew Tang

Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

Donald Trump is the first President since 1977, and the first major- party nominee since 1980, to refuse to release any of his federal income tax returns. This break in tradition has led lawmakers in at least twenty- five states to propose legislation requiring presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns in order to appear on state ballots. California is one of those states. On July 30, 2017, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 27 into law, effectively barring presidential candidates who have not made available for public inspection the last five years of their income tax returns from appearing …


It’S All About The Drd, What’S Wrong With Foreign Branches, And A Few Other Things You Should Know About The New International Tax Provisions, Rebecca Rosenberg Nov 2019

It’S All About The Drd, What’S Wrong With Foreign Branches, And A Few Other Things You Should Know About The New International Tax Provisions, Rebecca Rosenberg

Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

This Article highlights and analyzes some important points about the new international tax rules. For example, such provisions do not create an entirely territorial system. The partial movement towards territorial objectives is accomplished largely through the new 100% dividends received deduction (DRD) for certain foreign dividends from foreign corporations. However, this new DRD is much more limited in its application than most taxpayers may realize (for example, due to a very long holding period requirement). Even when the DRD potentially applies, taxpayers may attempt to claim foreign tax credits instead.

In addition, some of the new tax provisions show a …


Taxation In The Cyber Age: The Future Of Wayfair, Hasmik Hmayakyan May 2019

Taxation In The Cyber Age: The Future Of Wayfair, Hasmik Hmayakyan

Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review

This Comment aims to act as a guiding source for potential issues that will arise from South Dakota v. Wayfair, which was decided in August 2018. The Wayfair decision changed the long-held requirement that states can only collect sales taxes from sellers that have a physical presence within the state.

Under Complete Auto Transit, Inc. v. Brady, the Supreme Court put forth a test that states must meet if they wish to collect a sales tax from sellers. One of the prongs of this test allows a state to collect a sales tax from a seller if the seller has …

Medical Necessity: A Higher Hurdle For Marginalized Taxpayers?, Julie Furr Youngman, Courtney D. Hauck Jan 2018

Medical Necessity: A Higher Hurdle For Marginalized Taxpayers?, Julie Furr Youngman, Courtney D. Hauck

Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

Civil rights protection for transgender people—and in particular access to affordable health care—is currently the subject of intense political scrutiny, with a hostile administration chipping away at legal protections. Among other setbacks, a federal district court enjoined regulatory guidelines that were issued in 2016 to clarify that the federal prohibition on sex discrimination in health insurance applies to discrimination on the basis of gender identity and transgender status, and the promulgating agency itself is now reconsidering the guidelines. Without explicit federal protections against discrimination by health insurers and in the face of uneven state law protections, the ability to deduct …

Tax 2018: Requiem For Ability To Pay, Alice G. Abreu Jan 2018

Tax 2018: Requiem For Ability To Pay, Alice G. Abreu

Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

Enactment of the TCJA was followed by a mad dash to understand its effects. The speed and process of enactment left no time for serious attempts to analyze whether the TCJA transforms the income tax system in any fundamental way. This Essay is a first step in that analysis. Although some of the most important changes I discuss are set to expire or phase out after 2025, understanding their policy implications is important, not only because they are the law now but also because Congress may extend them, perhaps indefinitely.

The TCJA has changed the way the tax system operationalizes …

Taxing Greed, Genevieve Tokić Jan 2017

Taxing Greed, Genevieve Tokić

Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

Appeals to greed in support of various tax proposals are often seen in response to populist moods in politics. Such appeals may be used to garner political support for a policy or proposal. However, there has been little academic consideration of the role of greed (or attitudes towards greed) in the law, and in tax law in particular. This Article seeks to fill that gap by taking a close look at the concept of greed. In doing so, the Article first surveys the history of greed and its meaning, and draws on political philosophy and economic literature to provide a …


Why Should We Not Protest For Consumption Tax Reduction? Consumption Tax Rate As A Partial Mechanism For Increasing Consumer Wealth, Limor Riza, Noam Sher Apr 2015

Why Should We Not Protest For Consumption Tax Reduction? Consumption Tax Rate As A Partial Mechanism For Increasing Consumer Wealth, Limor Riza, Noam Sher

Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review

If you are an activist protesting against the high costs of living, we would like to offer you one suggestion: do not demand that the government reduce consumption tax. Social activists tend to believe that a government policy reducing consumption tax can, by itself, benefit the general population. This paper explains our suggestion to the contrary.

The tax field alone is insufficient for consumption tax reduction to be effective in increasing consumer wealth over benefiting suppliers. Due to cognitive biases, or heuristics, when the government changes consumption tax rates in order to increase consumers’ well-being, suppliers are able to …
