Welcome to TaxBlawg, a resource for news and analysis of current legal issues facing tax practitioners. Although blawg.com identifies nearly 1,400 active “blawgs,” including 20+ blawgs related to taxation and estate planning, the needs of tax professionals have received surprisingly little attention. The Wall Street Journal's Tax Blog gives “tips and advice for filers,” and Paul Caron’s legendary TaxProf Blog is an excellent clearinghouse for academic and policy-oriented news. Yet, tax practitioners still lack a dedicated resource to call their own. For those intrepid souls, we offer TaxBlawg, a forum of tax talk for tax pros.

- Forbes - Business in the Beltway: Taxes? Hold ‘Em!. It seems that the pending deal on individual taxes will include a one-year extension of the R&D tax credit here in the U.S.
- BusinessWeek: German FinMin Defends Need for Euro. Not technically about tax, but a breakup of the Euro could have significant, if temporary, implications for U.S. taxpayers. Then again, Europe might be headed in the opposite direction, towards closer fiscal coordination. The Economist also chimes in.
