NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Internal Revenue Service, state and local taxing authorities, and other tax revenue agencies around the world enhance enforcement, demand greater transparency and impose more complex reporting requirements, KPMG LLP, the audit, tax, and advisory firm, has launched Tax Dispute Resolution Quarterly – an e-magazine designed to help corporate taxpayers stay abreast of significant news and developments in the tax dispute arena.
"Increased scrutiny and the demand for greater transparency from tax authorities are posing a host of challenges for many companies," said Frank Lavadera, principal-in-charge of KPMG LLP's Tax Dispute Resolution (TDR) Services Network. "As taxing authorities intensify their efforts to ensure compliance with tax laws at a time of mounting government debt, our new communication tool will help corporate taxpayers stay on top of fast-moving developments on many different tax dispute resolution fronts."
Tax Dispute Resolution Quarterly will focus on significant federal, state, and local tax enforcement trends, practices, and procedures that impact many businesses, says Paul Manning, principal-in-charge of the Practice, Procedure & Administration group in KPMG's Washington National Tax (WNT) practice. Individual articles also will cover relevant legislative and regulatory tax developments, new or revised tax compliance filing requirements, and seminal tax court decisions, among other topics.
Manning, who spent the early part of his career as an IRS National Office attorney monitoring and coordinating significant litigation matters, will serve as editor-in-chief of the new publication. Professionals from KPMG's WNT practice and members of KPMG's national TDR Services Network will regularly contribute content to the new e-magazine.
KPMG's Tax Dispute Resolution Services Network, a national team of professionals from all areas of KPMG's Tax practice, assists clients in identifying, managing, and mitigating potential tax risks and exposures and works with clients to prevent disputes before they arise and to successfully resolve those matters that ultimately are subject to challenge by the taxing authorities.
