Ruth Mason

University of Virginia School of Law

Tax Law Review, Vol. 59, 2005

This Article considers the effects of EC law on U.S. tax treaty policy. The discussion is framed by the controversy over the legality of tax treaty limitation on benefits clauses (LOBs) in the wake of recent ECJ decisions, and it argues that U.S. tax treaty policy is on a collision course with the tax jurisprudence of the ECJ.
