Excerpt taken from the article "IRS Suggests Several Changes to Tax Court Rules" by Nathan J. Richman for Tax Notes.

Mark D. Allison of Caplin & Drysdale Chtd. told Tax Analysts that it is not uncommon for the Tax Court to invite comments on proposed changes to its rules and that the court is typically generous in hearing those comments. Allison, former chair of the American Bar Association Section of Taxation's Court Practice and Procedure Committee, said the Tax Court typically has a proposal in those situations. "This is clearly different since it was an open-ended request," he said, adding that he has not seen that before.
