The Tax Break Shenanigans
of J. Winston Krause

In 2008, Commissioner Krause sued the
IRS to get a refund of interest and penalties
he had paid for a disallowed deduction
and income. The disallowed deduction ...
he bought Canadian dollars for $20K;
claimed he paid $2.8 million; he showed
a loss of <$2.7 million> yet he had
sold the Canadian dollars for $19.5K.
A 2010 5th Circuit of Appeals quote ...

interesting and telling story about
the man who Chairs our Lottery.

About Those Awful Changes
To Mega Millions

If Players had consumer protection, rules like
this would not be adopted. Increased odds,
increased ticket price ($2), still offers a
break-even prize and a jackpot winner receives
whatever amount the Finance Group
determines - not the amount in the prize pool.
