Law360 Covers Gardere Client Rent-A-Center's Battle in U.S. Tax Court

01.21.14

Law360 covered a U.S. Tax Court's ruling that expanded its view on captive insurers by allowing Rent-A-Center Inc. to deduct payments made to its Bermuda-based insurance subsidiary Legacy Insurance Co. Ltd. In a split decision, the Tax Court found that deductions were permitted because Legacy shifted risk from the company's numerous subsidiaries.

"Federal income tax consequences were considered, but the formation of Legacy was not a tax-driven transaction," the majority opinion said. "To the contrary, in forming Legacy, petitioner made a business decision premised on the myriad of significant and legitimate nontax considerations."

Rent-A-Center is represented by Gardere Tax Attorneys Val J. Albright and Brent C. Gardner.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
