    Kathleen Kerrigan is stepping into her new role as the US Tax Court's chief judge with an overarching goal to help the court in living with the Covid-19 pandemic. Kerrigan says her work will include moving to more in-person trials while still maintaining flexibility. In addition, she hopes to increase electronic filing now that DAWSON—the case management system launched by the court in late 2020—makes that possible. On this week's Talking Tax, Kerrigan also spoke about access to Tax Court records, avenues to advance or resolve cases pre-trial, and work by the court to promote diversity and equity.

    The United States ranks first globally for financial secrecy, according to the latest report by the Tax Justice Network and US authorities are trying to do something about it. The Pandora Papers show secretive business structures are thriving in states including Delaware, Nevada, South Dakota, and Wyoming. A few states are taking the problem seriously including New York, which debated but failed to enact the LLC Transparency Act (A9415/S8439) earlier this year. Among other things, the proposed law would require full disclosure of the beneficial owners of limited liability companies and the creation of a publicly searchable database of this information. On this episode of Talking Tax, we hear two perspectives on New York’s proposal. Ryan Gurule, policy director of the Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency Coalition, contends the states have an important role to play to halt illicit financial flows that facilitate tax evasion and money laundering. Elizabeth “Beth” Garvey, a shareholder in the government policy practice of Greenberg Traurig LLP, cautions that New York’s proposal would create a “backdoor tax” and interfere with the state’s business development objectives. Gurule and Garvey spoke with Bloomberg Tax senior correspondent Michael Bologna. Do you have feedback on this episode of Talking Tax? Give us a call and leave a voicemail at 703-341-3690.

    The July 8 news that the US was canceling a bilateral tax treaty with Hungary that has been in place since 1979 took a lot of people by surprise. While Treasury pointed to conditions in the treaty it said were unfavorable to the US, the announcement also came amid Hungary's continued opposition at the European Union to the 15% minimum tax the Biden administration has championed. On this week's Talking Tax, Sean Foley, the global head of KPMG's transfer pricing dispute resolution network, talks about the implications of the treaty termination, including on dispute resolution and withholding taxes.
