Tax Shelters- The Senate Will Speak

According to the Washington Post here, a Senate panel will be releasing a report today discussing tax shelters.  The aim is to crackdown on shelters that some may consider legitimate, but others find clearly illegitimate. Issues of "advice of counsel" may play a factor in some of these shelters where some acted on the advice of people who thought the shelters legal.

  • People who take these risks often find themselves paying more.
  • Clarity in the law always works to everyone's benefit.
