Prof. Linda Galler Speaks on Ethical Issues in Tax Practice at 2018 Tulane Tax Institute

Linda Galler, Professor of Law

Professor Linda Galler was a featured panelist on Nov. 1 at the 67th Tulane Tax Institute in New Orleans.

Since the first institute in 1951, the Tulane Tax Institute has presented a forum for attorneys, CPAs and estate planners to hear nationally recognized tax and estate planning legal practitioners, law professors and accountants present in-depth reviews of recent tax statutes, regulations and decisions; learn practical tax and estate planning tips; and discuss the current issues impacting their practice.

Professor Galler’s panel addressed ethical considerations in taking tax positions and giving tax advice in an age of uncertainty, where:

• the law is unclear;
• the statutory language and legislative history are contradictory; and/or
• interpretive guidance is not forthcoming.
