November 1, 2023 | What the Culp Decision Means for Taxpayers
The founders of the Procedurally Taxing blog will explain its importance and its new relationship with Tax Analysts, and they will also discuss the Third Circuit’s decision in Culp, in which the court held that the filing deadline for a Tax Court case isn’t jurisdictional and is subject to equitable tolling. That key decision reverses precedent and will give more taxpayers their day in Tax Court. The panel will explain what the decision (and similar cases such as Boechler v. United States and Salsi v. Commissioner) means for low-income taxpayers in particular and for tax administration and jurisprudence generally.
Tax Analysts is offering this episode of Taxing Issues as a free service to the public, and all attendees can receive CPE credit. To do so, you must register for the webcast before it starts and log in no later than the scheduled start time. You also must request CPE credits before each webcast, and you must answer the polling questions that will be asked throughout the event.
