Re: That is a tax planning/structuring/control problem,.........

And.........the result is that they continue to do that which they did before, expecting a different outcome???


My point was--------people focus on one or two items with respect to income taxes, or as totally a compliance issue, and do not treat taxes like another dept or enterprise, with the result being they continue to have to dance to the current tax problem.........


A decent tax person should be able to establish a structure that allows them to treat taxes as another major expense, fitting them into a structure that enhances the use of other tax "gymnastics", thereby limiting the overall taxes anyway, so that the taxpayer does not have to depend on the buy/not buy decisions in December all the time.


And, frankly, if the taxpayer does not want to engage in that kind of long term tax planning/structuring-----let 'em pay the consequences.
