Former Treasury Official Rejoins Covington

October 1, 2019

WASHINGTONLindsay Kitzinger, who until recently was an Attorney Advisor in the Office of International Tax Counsel, within the U.S. Treasury's Office of Tax Policy, has rejoined Covington as a partner in its Tax Practice Group in Washington.

During her time at Treasury, Ms. Kitzinger was involved in the tax reform legislation that was enacted in December 2017, and the regulations implementing the most significant international tax provisions in that legislation. While at Treasury, Ms. Kitzinger provided technical guidance to Congress and the Joint Committee on Taxation with respect to the 2017 legislation, and subsequently developed and drafted proposed regulations providing guidance on its international tax provisions, including the transition tax and U.S. foreign tax credit. 

In addition, Ms. Kitzinger also served as the main contact point within Treasury for international tax issues arising in the G7, G20, and other international fora, represented the U.S. at meetings of the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs, and dealt with issues relating to income tax treaties.

"Lindsay's experience is invaluable because of the importance of understanding the legislation and the Treasury Department’s decision making process and thinking around the implementing regulations surrounding the 2017 Tax Reform Act," said Daniel Luchsinger, chair of the firm's Tax Practice Group. "Given her role in in drafting much of the international tax guidance coming from the Treasury in the past few years, she has a nuanced understanding of what has become an extremely complicated landscape of overlapping rules and regulations."

"I am excited to rejoin my highly talented Covington colleagues and hit the ground running," said Ms. Kitzinger. "I look forward to advising clients on the many complex issues related to tax reform and other tax-related legislation and regulations."

Ms. Kitzinger received her law degree from Harvard Law School and her undergraduate degree from George Washington University.
