This author has previously addressed several areas of conflict between bankruptcy officials; i.e., trustees and judges, and the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"). Due to continued litigation, both in the U.S. Supreme Court and in certain federal courts of appeal, some of these areas will be reevaluated in this article. In addition, new areas of conflict resulting in litigation in various levels of the federal court system will be discussed. Policy and statutory modifications will be suggested to alleviate the growing costly burden of litigation.
