WASHINGTON, D.C.—Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Tax Program and Steptoe & Johnson LLP are pleased to jointly announce the launch of “Substantial Authorities: The Tax Podcast,” a series of conversations with distinguished tax figures on matters relating to tax administration, tax controversy, and tax litigation. The video podcast is hosted by Steptoe tax partner Matt Frank.
The first interview features an in-depth conversation with Albert G. Lauber, a senior judge on the US Tax Court. Lauber was appointed to the court by former President Obama and was sworn in on January 31, 2013 for a term ending in 2028. He assumed senior status on January 1, 2020. Lauber has been recognized as one of the most productive judges on the Tax Court, and some of his more notable opinions include The Coca-Cola Company v. Commissioner (2020), Whirlpool Financial Corp. v. Commissioner (2020), and Amazon.com, Inc. v. Commissioner (2017).
