Excerpt taken from the article.

"This case finally resolves the question of whether internal consistency and fair apportionment principles apply as equally to individuals as they do to corporate taxpayers," Caplin & Drysdale Chtd. member Mark Allison told Law360. "It's a question that's been lurking out there for some time, and now we have an answer that lays down the marker and is so clear. It's an important issue even for other cases that are currently pending."
