In the past few years, several states have made their tax tribunals independent by separating them from their revenue departments.
In this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report, Craig B. Fields and Richard C. Call, of Morrison & Foerster LLP in New York, take a closer look at the Model State Administrative Tax Tribunal Act promulgated through the American Bar Association. They discuss developments in states that have recently separated their tax tribunals from state revenue departments and compare these new state administrative appeals structures to the Model Act.
Fields and Call’s article can be read in its entirety here .
