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. Commissioner and Salsi v. Commissioner) means for low-income taxpayers in particular and for tax administration and jurisprudence generally.
As a global minimum tax attracts growing support around the world, discussion about it continues to unfold in the United States.

The skills and technology required in the tax industry are undergoing a major transformation. The industry is facing a burgeoning knowledge gap as leaders retire and fewer practitioners are available to take their place.

The technology presents an opportunity for legal professionals to decrease time on routine tasks and increase their productivity in advising.
