Mar.27.2015 — Law360
Washington, D.C.-based partner and member of the firm's Tax Group, David J. Fischer, talks with Law360 about the expert tips and best practices taxpayers should keep in mind when negotiating an advance pricing agreement (APA)."You have to think about the likelihood of succeeding with an APA and whether you're willing to take a somewhat less aggressive position. Most APAs involve transactions with affiliates in jurisdictions with tax rates similar to the U.S. rate, so the IRS's tendency to push of the results toward the middle has less impact on the overall effective tax rate," said Fischer.
