Tax Boutique Caplin & Drysdale Sees Trend That May Further Limit Corporate Tax Planning Opportunities

Elan Keller Offers Reactions to Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations’ Hearing

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — In reaction to the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations’ hearing on offshore profit shifting and the U.S. tax code, Elan Keller, member at renowned tax firm Caplin & Drysdale, is offering commentary on the impact this hearing will have on U.S. corporations in relation to offshore profit allocation and the U.S. Tax Code.  During yesterday’s hearing, the Subcommittee examined the shifting of profits offshore by U.S. multinational corporations and how such activities are affected by the Internal Revenue Code and related regulations.

“The ability of US multinational corporations to engage in creative tax planning is becoming more difficult due to the current trend requiring more transparency at both the tax reporting and tax compliance levels,” said Elan Keller, member, Caplin & Drysdale. “Given the global economic environment, U.S. multinational corporations will be under more scrutiny by Congress and the IRS which may cause them to take a second look at their tax planning structures.”
