[en] This chapter attempts to cover a range of interrelated questions that are all inextricably linked to the EU-US relationship in direct tax matters. Its main theme is the potential influence of legal and political developments within the EU on this external relationship. Shining a critical light on the legality of some of the recent changes made to EU legislation and enforcement in the context of the global fight against BEPS, it argues that the US government's newly assumed active role with respect to EU tax policy may inadvertently strengthen tendencies to bring direct tax matters more comprehensively into the range of power of the Commission – including at the international level – as it creates an interest on the US side to negotiate directly with the 'rela decision makers' rather than intermediaries without sovereign power over the entirety of the issues. It concludes, however, that in the current state of integration of direct taxation within the EU, such a bilateral relationship and the conclusion of an EU-US DTA is not yet legally possible. This would likely change, however, if the EU were to adopt a comprehensive corporate taxation regime along the lines of the Commission's CCTB proposal. At the same time, the Commission can no longer be kept entirely on the sidelines in Member States' DTC negotiations.
