I’m at the office on a Sunday afternoon, working on a fiercely technical pre-immigration tax plan. (“How do I become a resident of the United States and not pay tax?” is the question.) Don’t feel sorry for me, though. In about 2 hours I’ll be watching a primo Elvis impersonator for free in the park. Sierra Madre rocks, baby! (PDF)
Bang. Through the RSS feed comes news of an IRS/UBS settlement, perhaps. (Warning: WSJ and possibly broken due to WSJ’s pay wall). The warring parties asked the judge for a continuance so they could talk amongst themselves.
No predictions. But this is a bigger deal than just collecting taxes from 52,000 Americans. So I wouldn’t be surprised with the anti-UBS litigation ending in a whimper. It’s better than kicking a diplomatic snit with Switzerland.
What to do with this information?
Give me a call at +1-626-437-2500 if you want to solve the problem. Or see me in Central Park (Sierra Madre’s Central Park, that is) at 6:00 p.m. tonight. We’ll be right up front. Rockin’ to Elvis. 🙂
