O’Neill v. Commissioner

O’Neill v. Commissioner – Wrote the winning brief in the nationally-recognized tax case of O’Neill v. Commissioner, 994 F.2d (6th Cir.). This case against the IRS allowed trustees to deduct investment management expenses without a 2% of income deduction. It is significant to any individual who uses an investment manager to handle his or her investment account. When the United States Supreme Court addressed this same issue in Knight v. Commissioner, they overturned O’Neill on a statutory construction basis.
