Law and Order: STC (State Tax Cases) (Jan 2020)

Hear opposing views from two lawyers whose practices focus on Texas franchise and sales tax cases. Jack Hohengarten, Chief of the Tax Division representing the Comptroller, explains the Comptroller’s litigating positions from significant 2018 and 2019 state tax cases. Lacy Leonard, a law partner in an Austin, Texas firm focusing exclusively on the trials and related appeals of the same cases, explains the taxpayers’ positions. They can’t both be correct. So, you be the judge.

Tax After 2017: Requiem for Ability to Pay (Jan 2020)

Enactment of the TCJA was followed by a mad dash to understand its effects; the speed and process of enactment left no time for serious attempts to analyze whether the TCJA transformed the income tax system in any fundamental way. But it has, and Professor Abreu explains how.

Analysis of the Financial and Income Tax Aspects When an Earnout is Used for the Sale of a Business (Jan 2020)

When a buyer and seller cannot agree upon a price for a business, an earnout is used and may result in selling the business for less than its true value. The materials discuss how earnout formulas can be adjusted to ensure that true value is paid. Because earnouts can result in adverse income tax treatment to the seller, the materials apply the installment sale and OID rules to illustrate the income tax treatment of earnouts and how to eliminate these adverse income tax results.

Ethical Issues Relating to the Use of Social Media and Blogging by Lawyers and Law Firms (Jan 2020)

Social media is a great new tool—we are bombarded with messages about the benefits for us as lawyers in credentialing and marketing ourselves, and educating the public with our blogs on legal issues. Many lawyers and judges use it successfully. Of course, it’s so easy to use these tools that we sometimes don’t remember that we can also make missteps. Also, our clients use (misuse) their accounts to talk about us. And when we or others do, social media is also there to show the resulting gaffe to (potentially) thousands if not millions of people.
