Charles Ruchelman Comments in Bloomberg on Taxpayer Privacy

April 3, 2020, Bloomberg Law

The new coronavirus pandemic is increasing the challenges for attorneys representing clients at the U.S. Tax Court, a place already slow to technological advancement.

Attorneys have long grappled with technological barriers at the court—not being able to electronically file petitions or access many case documents online, for example. But now that the building is shuttered until further notice, tax professionals are facing additional hurdles, and they fear it could get worse the longer the virus outbreak continues.

. . .

Charles M. Ruchelman, member at Caplin & Drysdale in Washington, pushed back on any move to make all filings public, saying the Tax Court’s system is in place to protect taxpayer privacy, and it would be a big ask for the court to redact all documents for sharing online.
