Section of Taxation:
ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL TAXES COMMITTEE


Who We Are

The Energy & Environmental Taxes Committee focuses on tax issues dealing directly or indirectly with energy resources or that have special significance in connection with the environmental laws or the implementation of environmental policy. The committee acts as a forum for the discussion of these issues and develops proposals to improve the functional relationship between the environmental and natural resource laws and tax laws. It monitors and comments on (both in writing and in person to Congressional, IRS, and Treasury personnel) proposed and newly enacted tax statutes, regulations, and rulings affecting the areas of natural resources or environmental law, as well as issues affecting professionals working in these areas.


Attention Young Lawyers!





The Energy & Environmental Taxes Committee is actively seeking young attorneys interested in developing careers in this specialty. If you're interested in networking with peers sharing an interest in the taxation of natural resources or of environmental issues, please submit your information to the Committee Chair, Deborah Karet Gordon.
