Abstract

In part, Interpretation Matters is about the craft of advocacy, how statutory interpretation arguments can be effectively made - and effectively countered - in state and local tax cases. For example, when one's opponent in such a case invokes one or another of the canons of construction, how is that canon to be blunted?
