Tax Analysts Announces the Most Interesting People and Project of the Year in Tax

December 15, 2017

U.S. tax reform, the development of a more comprehensive model revenue agent report statute, and increased transparency in tax matters won recognition from Tax Notes, State Tax Notes, and Tax Notes International magazines in their upcoming December 18 issues.  

Tax Notes, State Tax Notes, and Tax Notes International, Tax Analysts’ weekly publications on current and essential tax news, analysis, and commentary, on Monday will release their 2017 year in review issues and recognize the following for influencing federal, state, and international tax policy and practice.

In their annual Person and Project of the Year features, the publications recognized:

  • House Ways and Means Committee Chair Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, for their work on tax reform and the ability to unite Republican lawmakers behind the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
  • The task force comprising Nikki E. Dobay and Fred Nicely of the Council On State Taxation, Pilar Mata of the Tax Executives Institute, Jonathan Horn of the American Institute of CPAs, and Bruce Ely and Will Thistle of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, which created the draft Model Uniform Statute and Regulation for Reporting Adjustments to Federal Taxable Income and Federal Partnership Audit Adjustments.  
  • EU Tax Commissioner Pierre Moscovici was recognized as Tax Notes International’s 2017 Person of the Year for his commitment to bringing transparency to taxation in the EU. Moscovici urged EU members to crack down on tax intermediaries that market aggressive tax planning schemes, and he is an avid supporter of public disclosure of beneficial ownership and of country-by-country reporting for multinationals.
