"Current Issues in Estate and Gift Tax Audits and Litigation"

This discussion will address current issues and trends in the transfer tax controversy arena at the audit level, appeals and in litigation. It will include issues related to the valuation and transfer of interests in closely-held entities, the use of formula clauses, positions taken by the IRS and ways to address them at the planning level.

John Porter is a Senior Partner in the Houston office of the law firm of Baker Botts L.L.P. and a member of the firm’s Tax Department. 

John handles federal gift, estate, and income tax litigation and controversy work. He is nationally recognized for his expertise in representing taxpayers before and against the IRS in estate and gift tax controversies, especially those involving hard-to-value assets. John has served as lead counsel for taxpayers in numerous cases in the United States Tax Court, the Court of Federal Claims, and Federal District Court and has represented taxpayers in many other federal tax audits and appeals. John also has a substantial practice in fiduciary litigation.

One Education Credit for CLE (PA Only), Insurance (PA Only), CFP, CPA (PA Only), PACE and CTFA will be offered.
