PPL Corp. and Subsidiaries v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue (Granted )

Docket: 12-43
Issue(s): Whether, in determining the creditability of a foreign tax, courts should employ a formalistic approach that looks solely at the form of the foreign tax statute and ignores how the tax actually operates, or should employ a substance-based approach that considers factors such as the practical operation and intended effect of the foreign tax.
