Lawyers, tax or otherwise, understand that privileged information must be protected to encourage a full and frank dialogue between clients and their attorneys. Tax information, in particular, contains some of the most private information for both individuals and businesses. Gray Reed attorneys Joshua D. Smeltzer, David Gair and Larry Jones recently published an article in the Journal of Tax Practice & Procedure (a quarterly scholarly journal published by CCH Inc.) examining privilege before a dispute arises through litigation in court. A reprint of the article is available here.
