Happy Independence Day! I hope you will be spending time with family and friends and celebrating those who gave us our great freedoms!

In case you missed it, the Supreme Court has ruled "...the IRS has lost a battle in its ongoing war against Internal Revenue Code § 831(b) captive insurance companies, or so-called “micro-captive” insurance transactions." The article below goes into the details and some information on the Anti-Injunction Act, which is wrong for several reasons.

Have a Safe and Fun 4th of July,

Captive Insurance Wins a Battle,
but the War Continues
On Tax Day, May 17, 2021, in a unanimous opinion authored by Justice Kagan, the United States Supreme Court held that the Anti-Injunction Act ("AIA") does not bar a pre-enforcement challenge to the legality of an IRS-imposed standalone reporting requirement, a violation of which may result in both civil tax penalties and criminal liability. The Court’s decision in CIC Services, LLC v. Internal Revenue Service may open the door to a host of pre-enforcement challenges to IRS reporting requirements brought by taxpayers and others who are affected by such requirements.

Life Insurance

Although no one enjoys thinking about the possibility of the future after their passing, life insurance can provide your loved ones with comfort and assurance in the event of your death.

In our lives, we often experience important milestones that lead us to contemplate our future. When we consider our lives and what lies ahead, we must inevitably consider what may happen to those we leave behind. Ultimately, your dependents or next of kin may be liable for any outstanding debt or expense such as tuition or childcare costs, mortgage payments, or even funeral, medical, or care expenses.
