Tax Avoidance; the Never Ending Search for Resolving Clashing Principles
Sponsor
Norman A. Sugarman Tax Scholar in Residence Lecture presented by the Center for Business Law and Regulation
APR 5, 2010
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

* What is the definition of avoidance?
* Would principles based drafting help our tax legislation?
* It is possible to arrange your affairs to avoid paying the maximum tax, but you may not abuse the purpose of tax statutes
* Although the United Kingdom does not have a General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR), there is avoidance legislation (the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) Tax Law Review Committee has just published a review of UK avoidance legislation since 2000: www.ifs.org.uk)
* There is also avoidance in situations other than taxation, for example in "hire purchase" (rent to own) situations or in a particular property law case where a landowner built a path to go around a toll gate in order to avoid paying the toll.
