Our partners in the Tax Controversies Department have authored an article titled The Inevitable: Death and Taxes published in the New York Law Journal.

Christina Jonathan and Terence E. Smolev write: There is an old English saying usually attributed to Benjamin Franklin that nothing in our lives is certain except death and taxes.
