Prof. Hickman Quoted in Tax Notes Regarding Recent Tax Administration Cases
Professor Kristin Hickman's participation in a webinar regarding recent tax cases was highlighted in an article by Tax Notes, "Academic: Recent IRS Losses Show Courts Holding IRS Accountable," reporting on the conversation. The cases under discussion concerned IRS compliance with procedural requirements imposed by the Administrative Procedure Act. The IRS lost most of the cases discussed, and some of those cases cited Prof. Hickman's academic work. Among other coverage, Prof. Hickman was quoted as saying that "the IRS has a really hard job ... but they expect us to comply with the laws that apply to us, so we have a right to expect them to comply with the laws that apply to them."
