“That was a sea change in how multinationals should be taxed,” said Clark Armitage, president of law firm Caplin & Drysdale and a former senior official at the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, in Washington. “But what they’re trying to do now is bigger than any of that. It’ll change the fundamental rules of how the global tax regime operates.”
