Over the past five years, major tax law changes seem to be one of the natural consequences of single-party control in Washington. Although a unified government is common at the beginning of a new president’s term, single-party control also tends to end with the first midterm election. What do condensed periods of unified government mean for tax policy as well as the stability and simplicity of the tax code? Where do areas of bipartisan consensus exist on tax policy and how might bipartisan proposals advance under future single-party rule? Which tax proposals are more likely to advance in divided government?

Session Objectives:



  • Learn how “the weaponization of procedure” contributes to volatile tax policy.
  • Briefly review select and recent tax law changes with important profession-level impacts.
  • Understand where areas of tax policy consensus exist for purposes of future bipartisan tax efforts.

Since March 2020, the IRS has elevated fraud enforcement to new heights with the establishment of the Office of Fraud Enforcement, led by a former IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge and Director of International Operations; appointment of National Fraud Counsel; and creation of the Office of Promoter Investigations, led by a veteran of the IRS with extensive experience managing investigations and examinations involving abusive transactions. The IRS also has enhanced fraud training efforts across the IRS operating divisions, reinforced fraud referral procedures with subject matter experts, announced new compliance campaigns, and initiated parallel proceedings targeting taxpayers and professional enablers participating in abusive tax avoidance schemes. Priority areas include, but are not limited to, high income non-filers, micro-captive insurance, syndicated conservation easements, virtual currency, the gig economy, and Puerto Rico residency programs. This session will discuss the current state of enforcement against high income/high wealth taxpayers and what we can expect in the days to come.
