Distinguished Research Professor & Shackelford Distinguished Professor in Taxation Law Walter Hellerstein filed a “friend of the court” brief in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of a group of distinguished academic economists with expertise in taxation, who urged the Court to resolve a conflict between two federal appellate courts over the creditability of foreign taxes and to hold that economic substance, rather than form, should determine the outcome.
