Seattle University School of Law student Michael Rice (who also writes a more personal law blog, The Law According to Michael Rice) focuses his efforts at the Tax Law Journal on tax policy and the Internal Revenue Code. Being based out of Seattle, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Michael’s posts also find a way to weave in technology and its use in the tax world.

I’m starting to enjoy working on Tax Law Journal (TLJ) more and more. Oh, I know… that might sound strange to you. You are thinking to yourself, “Well, didn’t you set up the blog? Why would you do it if you weren’t into it?” But to me, setting up a blog and getting a few [...]I’m starting to enjoy...
When I was an enterprise consultant, I was always impressed with the work that firms like Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst and Young, Accenture, and the like did. Not only did they have complete analysis of what the industry was doing, they led the industry. I would like to do the same with...
Tonight resulted in some free sushi, some free beer, and a lot of great blogging advice from seasoned local law bloggers such as China Law Blog’s Dan Harris and (of course) my old email friend, Seattle Trademark Lawyer Michael Atkins. All courtesy of Avvo’s Shalini Gujavarty! Even though I’ve been...
I was a big fan of GovTrack.us the very first time I saw it. But OpenCongress took a great service and made it fantastic. For example, I’m looking at Rep. Rangel’s Alternative Minimum Tax Relief Act of 2008. It shows me what people are saying about it in comments, what news reports have been...
So far, I’m getting fabulous feedback and advice, and the response has been overwhelming. I’ve tried to do a lot of different things in my life, but this has–by far–been the most rewarding with the least amount of effort. What a fabulous community of professionals! The only...
A few days ago I wrote about the apprehension I had in approaching some of the tax law professors around the country about my proposal for a symposium. Would I overdo it? Underdo it? What should I do? Well today, I finally got some really good feedback, and the professors who responded quickly are...
It’s going to be an interesting time to talk about and study tax law and tax policy over the next few years (for both you and I). Between the change in Presidential administrations and the 2010 expiration of Bush’s much discussed 2001 tax cuts, the field will be open in ways not seen...
I thought I’d be further along in my preparations at this point in the summer, but it turns out that starting my first summer associate position took at a lot more out of me after work than I predicted. I’m getting back on track now, though. Right now I’m reaching out to the...
Tonight I stumbled across the recently published Rev. Proc. 2008–28, and I learned a little about REMIC’s and a little about securitization vehicles as a result. I learned some of it from Wikipedia, but I learned even more from Massachusetts lawyer Doug Cornelious. Basically, REMICS are...
As you know, we have a progressive income tax system. This means that the more you earn, the more you pay. Unsurprisingly, entrepreneurs often balk at this structure on the basis that they credit new jobs and they create new wealth. I think they may have a good point, so here’s a proposal...
