Did the IRS allow improper tax credits last year?

In a number of our posts we highlighted how private debt collectors would be dispatched to collect on dormant taxes as a result of the PATH legislation. It was created to generate and divert tax revenue for infrastructure projects. In addition to new collection efforts, the law would close a number of loopholes and limit tax credits that many taxpayers currently enjoy.

When is 'obstruction' really actionable?

As tax attorneys, we know how difficult dealing with the IRS can be. After all, most business owners do not have the same intimate knowledge of the U.S. Tax Code that IRS agents and Justice Department lawyers may have. But prosecutors have a great deal of discretion when determining when to pursue charges, and the law is written quite broadly to account for different actions that can be criminalized.

Can tax savings come from private placement insurance?

Tax savings comes in many forms. While many individuals and businesses focus sound financial practices, others may flock to insurance to limit what is owed to Uncle Sam. According to a recent Bloomberg.com report, the use of insurance dedicated funds is becoming a mainstream method of providing a legal way to avoid paying taxes. These products have become so popular after being introduced in the midst of the last recession that major financial institutions are now offering them.
