Tax News: SCOTUS to Hear Civil War-era Statute Challenge

Comments (0)

The Supreme Court of the United States announced its decision to hear a challenge to a Civil War-era statute in  CIC Services, LLC v. Internal Revenue Service, U.S., No. 19-930, cert granted 5/4/20.

The statute has been primarily used to block lawsuits that challenge tax regulatory actions.  Plaintiff is requesting SCOTUS to reverse the Sixth Circuit's decision to dismiss Plaintiff's suit under the Anti-Injunction Act, protecting the Government from law suits aiming to restrict or restrain tax assessments or collections. 

A reversal from SCOTUS would mean taxpayers may challenge Treasury Department or Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") tax regulatory actions.

In the Sixth Circuit, the case split the sixteen (16) judges resulting in seven (7) judges signing onto a dissent against the majority decision.
