Taxpayer Had Enough Confidence in the Business’ Ability to Keep the Money It Received That the Sums Were Immediately Considered Income.

The case of United States v. VanDemark involves a taxpayer who, according to the Sixth Circuit opinion’s opening sentence, “tried to hoodwink the IRS.” We don’t frequently talk about criminal tax cases on this website. Outside of the criminal tax controversy context, it is noteworthy that he attempted to make the defense claim that he did not have to report cash deposits he received as income because there was no “some guarantee” the business would keep the money. However, the appellate panel did not find this defense argument to be persuasive given the circumstances of his case.

We don’t often write about criminal tax cases here on this site, but the case of United States v. VanDemark[1] discusses a taxpayer who, per the beginning of the Sixth Circuit opinion “tried to hoodwink the IRS.”[2] Of interest outside the criminal tax controversy context, he attempted to argue in his defense that he did not have to report cash deposits he received as income due to lack of “some guarantee” the business would keep the funds, an argument the appellate panel did not find persuasive given the facts of his case.

The Blue Lick Springs Walkway-The Local Perspective

John Klee, professor of history at Maysville Community and Technical College, relates the story of the white Indians:. “The legend goes, this Prince Madoc, I believe in the 12th century, took nine or twelve boats, and left Wales and was never heard of again. There were persistent stories, and it even found its way into some of the earlier newspapers. And one story that I believe Clift relates is that there was a present Welshman, and we’re talking here probably in the 1700’s, who was in Louisville. He was talking in Welsh, and one of the Indians understood him. And the theory goes that some of these white Indians had connections with the red Indians and had learned part of the language.
