The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Carlton turned 20 last year, but the core issue within the case, the constitutionality of retroactive tax legislation, remains embattled.
In this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report, Erica Horn, Madonna Schueler, both with Stoll Keenon Ogden, and Gregory Nowak, of Miller Canfield, discuss the Carlton decision and several 2014 cases on which it had an impact.
In the article, the authors take a closer look at two decisions coming out of New York that were taxpayer victories, and a pair of cases coming out of Washington and Michigan that “brought disappointing news to tax practitioners.”
The article can be read in its entirety here.
