Robin Greenhouse was quoted in the December 24 issue of Tax Notes about Regions Financial Corp. and the IRS coming to a settlement regarding the company's tax liabilities from 1999 through 2006. Because tax years at issue in the case are covered by the agreement, "I think a reasonable assumption is that it settles all issues that were raised for those years. And that would include the issues that were the subject of the tax accrual workpapers," Ms. Greenhouse said. "If the tax year is resolved, then we would expect the case -- the appeal -- to be moot. But the decision below would not be vacated," she added.
