March 25, 2022, 8:45 AM

Recent court rulings striking down two Internal Revenue Service reporting requirements suggest the agency may need to change its procedures so that its rules will hold up in court.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit struck down a tax reporting requirement on March 3 in Mann Construction, Inc. v. United States. That decision was cited by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee when it struck down a separate reporting requirement on March 21 in CIC Services, LLC v. IRS.

The decisions come as the Treasury Department, and the IRS within it, face increasing scrutiny over whether their tax rulemaking procedures have met legal requirements.

On the latest episode of Talking Tax, Melissa Wiley, Member in Caplin & Drysdale’s D.C. office, and Kristin Hickman, law professor at the University of Minnesota, discuss what the decisions could signal about how courts will approach federal tax rulemaking procedures. They speak with Bloomberg Tax’s Aysha Bagchi and Jeff Leon.
