Lobbying

I have represented several trade groups with regard to pending tax legislation and responding to IRS examination initiatives, such as coordinated issue papers which affect a large group of taxpayers.

I successfully obtained guidance under the Industry Issue Resolution Program on behalf of a trade group, which resulted in the issuance of Rev. Proc. 2006-14 permitting equipment dealers to use current replacement cost for their parts inventory.

I have also submitted comment letters to Treasury on various tax accounting issues, most recently in connection with whether royalties constituted an additional IRC § 263A cost.
