Tax Notes Today Quotes Monte Jackel on Executive Order Calling for Review of Tax Regulations

Monte Jackel, senior counsel in the tax practice at Akin Gump, was quoted in the Tax Notes Today article “Trump Order Will Require Review of Significant 2016 Tax Regs,” regarding an executive order signed by President Trump instituting an immediate review of “all significant tax regulations” since the beginning of 2016. It also requires the Department of the Treasury to provide an interim report on its findings within 60 days.

Speaking about the executive order, Jackel said he thought several regulations, including those that are temporary, final and proposed, could match the description of those being targeted. “I expect many groups of taxpayers to be marching into Treasury over the next few months to make their case,” he said.
