TEI Testifies before Congress on Apportionment Issues, Meets with IRS and Treasury Officials, Files Amicus Brief in State Tax Case, and Addresses Canada's Harmonized Sales Tax and Place of Supply Rules Spring came early this year as seeds of advocacy sown last fall sprouted into liaison meetings with the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, the Treasury Department s Office of Tax Policy, and representatives of the Internal Revenue Service's Large and Mid-Size Business Division. The Institute also accepted an invitation to testify before a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee on state tax apportionment rules. This testimony was not the only subnational advocacy pursued by the Institute this spring. TEI submitted comments in March urging the Canadian Department of Finance to issue guidance addressing the new Harmonized Sales Tax regime, and it filed a "friend of the court" brief in a case testing states' power to retroactively eliminate taxpayer rights to claim refunds for taxes collected improperly.
