Section of Taxation:
TEACHING TAXATION COMMITTEE


Message From The Chair






Thank you for visiting the home page of the Teaching Taxation Committee. Our Committee does not have substantive jurisdiction, but we are involved in a variety of projects. Among other activities, we put on programs on a diverse range of issues at the Section's three meetings during the year, write and submit comment projects (especially where the project does not neatly fall within a single area of substantive committee jurisdiction), and act as a bridge between the Section and law students interested in tax practice.

Our programs are designed to interest both professors and practitioners, including young lawyers. The Committee welcomes full-time tax professors, adjunct tax professors, and anyone else interested in our activities. Please join us at our meetings and consider joining the Committee.

For more information on the Teaching Taxation Committee, please feel free to contact me or Vice Chairs Kerry Ryan, Diane Ring, and Omri Marian.

Sincerely,

Anthony C. Infanti
Chair, Teaching Taxation Committee
Senior Associate Dean for Administration and Special Projects and
Professor of Law
University of Pittsburgh School of Law

The Status of the Tax Court post-Kuretski: Significant Shift, Minor Adjustment, or Nothing New?

September 18, 2015
The Supreme Court’s May 2015 denial of certiorari in Kuretski v. Commissioner now opens the field to other courts to assess the constitutionality of the Presidential power to remove Tax Court judges. This issue depends on whether the Tax Court is a court of law or an executive agency and whether that question is an absolute or contextual one. Challenges to Section 7443(f) are currently under consideration in a number of Tax Court cases, which would be appealed to different circuits. Foreshadowing the expected legal scrutiny of this question across circuits, panelists will discuss and debate the underlying legal questions and their implications.
