For ten boom-powered years at the turn of the twenty-first century, some of America'smost prominent law and accounting firms created and marketed products that enabled the very rich --including newly minted dot-com millionaires -- to avoid paying their fair share of taxes by claimingbenefits not recognized by law. These abusive domestic tax shelters bore such exotic names as BOSS,BLIPS, and COBRA and were developed by such prestigious firms as KPMG and Ernst & Young. Theybrought in hundreds of millions of dollars in fees from clients and bilked the U.S. Treasury ofbillions in revenues before the IRS and Justice Department stepped in with civil penalties andcriminal prosecutions. In Confidence Games, Tanina Rostain and Milton Regandescribe the rise and fall of the tax shelter industry during this period, offering a rivetingaccount of the most serious episode of professional misconduct in the history of the American bar.Rostain and Regan describe a beleaguered IRS preoccupied by attacks from antitax and antigovernmentpoliticians; heightened competition for professional services; the relaxation of tax practitionernorms against aggressive advice; and the creation of complex financial instruments that made abusiveshelters harder to detect. By 2004, the tax shelter boom was over, leaving failed firms, disgracedprofessionals, and prison sentences in its wake. Rostain and Regan's cautionary tale remains highlyrelevant today, as lawyers and accountants continue to face intense competitive pressure andregulators still struggle to keep pace with accelerating financial risk and innovation.

Despite its theoretical elegance, the standard optimal tax model has significantlimitations. In this book, Joel Slemrod and Christian Gillitzer argue that tax analysis must movebeyond the emphasis on optimal tax rates and bases to consider such aspects of taxation asadministration, compliance, and remittance. Slemrod and Gillitzer explore whatthey term a tax-systems approach, which takes tax evasion seriously; revisits the issue ofremittance, or who writes the check to cover tax liability (employer or employee, retailer orconsumer); incorporates administrative and compliance costs; recognizes a range of behavioralresponses to tax rates; considers nonstandard instruments, including tax base breadth andenforcement effort; and acknowledges that tighter enforcement is sometimes a more socially desirableway to raise revenue than an increase in statutory tax rates. Policy makers, Slemrod and Gillitzerargue, would be well advised to recognize the interrelationship of tax rates, bases, enforcement,and administration, and acknowledge that tax policy is really tax-systems policy.
The Taxation of Corporate Groups under Consolidation
Publication Date: 2012-12-20
The rise of corporate groups in the last century dictates a shift in the income tax law: instead of treating each company as a separate taxpayer, the tax consolidation regime is increasingly common. Antony Ting presents the first comprehensive comparative study of eight consolidation regimes in Australia, France, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and the USA. In the study, he critically analyses and compares alternative policy options with respect to ten key structural elements. The study improves understanding of the design and implementation of consolidation regimes and sets the stage for the search for a model. It provides valuable information with respect to the best practices, as well as the pitfalls, in the design of a consolidation regime. The book is essential to countries contemplating the introduction of a new consolidation regime and offers important insights into the management of such a complex structure through careful policy-orientated choices.
