BRASILIA, July 28 (Reuters) - Brazilian Finance Minister Joaquim Levy called off a press conference scheduled for later on Tuesday at the ministry's tax appeals court, his press office said, without citing the reasons for the cancellation.

Although the press briefing was about the tax court, many investors expected Levy to comment on Standard & Poor's threat to strip Brazil of its coveted investment-grade rating. (Reporting by Alonso Soto; Editing by Andrew Hay)
