ABA Calls for Crypto Tax Clarity
The American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Taxation wrote a letter to the Senate Finance Committee to ask for clear guidance on the taxation of cryptocurrencies.

Industry Group Urges Supreme Court To Reverse Foreign Tax Ruling
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce filed an amicus brief in which it asked the Supreme Court to clarify that Congress possesses the power to tax only income that is realized. The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case in which a married couple argued that the government does not have the authority to tax them as shareholders of a company because the company had not given them earnings. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) created the mandatory repatriation tax at issue. The couple is suing for a tax refund of less than $15,000, while the government has raised more than $340 billion in revenue from the tax at issue since the enactment of the TCJA. The Chamber of Commerce urged the Supreme Court to reverse the lower court’s decision to dismiss the case, arguing that the decision destroys the predictability and certainty in tax laws that businesses rely on.
