Partner Richard Riley has authored, with the assistance of Bradley Russell, the tax litigation chapter in the newly published fourth edition of Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts, a 153-chapter treatise that gives practicing attorneys expert guidance on virtually every aspect of business-related litigation in the federal courts.
Combining their taxation and business litigation practice knowledge, Riley and Russell provide a comprehensive survey of all important components of federal tax litigation for business taxpayers. This includes an explanation of business income tax disputes, tips on preliminary planning and analysis for business income tax controversies, and a discussion of the forums available for litigating and resolving tax controversies. They also explain all steps of tax litigation from statutory prerequisites to jurisdiction, and the major applicable procedural rules in each forum. And, their full section of practice aids—including a cross-referenced checklist, sample initial pleadings, and sample jury instructions—equips readers with tangible reference resources.
In addition to providing the fundamentals of tax litigation within this chapter, Riley and Russell compare and contrast in detail the United States Tax Court, the United States District Court and the United States Court of Federal Claims as they relate to the topic.
