Baker Botts Quarterly Tax Controversy Update

Client Updates

Welcome to the second quarterly Baker Botts Tax Controversy Update. Since our inaugural update, COVID-19 and economic concerns have significantly shifted the focus of our friends and clients. Reflecting that shift, our update for this quarter is heavily weighted to taxpayer relief, followed by discussions of cases and updates of general interest for federal income tax, federal estate and gift tax, and state and local tax (SALT).
