Andrew Weiner Moderates A Panel Titled “The Administrative Procedure Act v. The IRS: Which Regulations, Rules, And Notices Will Survive?” At The NYU Tax Controversy Forum
June 8 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT
On June 8, 2023, Andrew Weiner moderates a panel titled “The Administrative Procedure Act v. The IRS: Which Regulations, Rules, And Notices Will Survive?” at the NYU Tax Controversy Forum.
Ever since the Supreme Court rejected tax exceptionalism in Mayo Foundation v. United States, 562 U.S.
44 (2011), challenges to tax regulations and IRS notices have proliferated, with several important
decisions coming out in the last year alone. Courts have now developed a full body of jurisprudence
regarding application of the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”) to tax cases and it appears that
Treasury and the IRS are going to have to engage much more carefully with the APA as they issue new
guidance. Have we reached the end of “tax exceptionalism”? What does Treasury’s “Policy Statement on
the Tax Regulatory Process” mean for deference in tax litigation? How will the APA apply to the blizzard
of new guidance under the TCJA and increasingly the IRA? What might a post-Chevron world look like if, as some anticipate, the Supreme Court overrules the seminal decision next term? This panel addresses
these questions and explores the current state of the law on the APA as it applies to tax.
