At an increasing rate, US practitioners are now facing cases where the evidence they need is located in a foreign jurisdiction. International discovery presents complex and challenging issues for today’s tax litigators. With the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in full effect (as of May 25, 2018), practitioners face additional complications in gathering evidence and disclosing personal data to the IRS. This panel will explore how US discovery rules function outside of the US, data collection procedures available through the Hague Convention and letters rogatory, obstacles to discovery under various countries’ data privacy laws and statutes, and how the GDPR, which covers data protection and privacy of all individuals within the EU as well as the export of personal data outside the EU, has, and will continue to, impact it all.
