What You Should Know
Recently, the Courts ruled that Syzygy Insurance Company (“Syzygy”), a micro captive created by Highland Tank & Manufacturing Co. and its Associates (“HT&A”) did not qualify as an 831(b) micro-captive entity between the years of 2009 and 2011. Federal courts have been especially assertive outlining bad fact patterns for certain captives, as seen in similar case results such as Avrahami v. Commissioner (“Avrahami”) and Reserve Mechanical Corp v. Commissioner (“Reserve”).
Understanding the criteria and results of these court rulings is imperative to ensure that your clients’ captives, or even your own, are appropriately managed and operated.
