Tax Litigation

These proceedings have involved nearly all types of U.S. federal taxes, California taxes, as well as French income tax and VAT. Our clients include a wide variety of domestic and foreign corporations, public entities, partnerships, tax-exempt entities, and individuals. Our experience is that it is best to become involved at the audit level because cases are often damaged or even lost at this stage by evidentiary failures, and so that we can work to minimize the number of issues raised on audit and to resolve potentially large disputes completely before they surface publicly.

Other contributing factors include the increasing complexity of tax and other laws pursuant to which bonds are issued, the requirements for disclosure of information, the duties of issuers, trustees, underwriters and other participants after, as well as before, issuance of the bonds, and the greatly increased enforcement attention to the municipal bond sector from the IRS and the SEC. As ...

IRS Revenue Procedure 2017-13 Safe Harbor Requirements for Services Contracts

by Charles C. Cardall | 03.23.17

IRS Revenue Procedure 2017-13 (the "Revenue Procedure") sets forth, and significantly liberalizes, the requirements for determining whether a contract (a "Services Contract") with a service provider or manager (a "Service Provider") can cause the Service Provider to be treated as a private business user of a facility financed with tax-exempt bonds (a "Project").  This guidance provides a safe harbor relating to government purpose and 501(c)(3) bonds.  Satisfying the requirements means the Services Contract will not cause private business use ("Private Use").  SAFE HARBOR ...
