Trade-offs that Make Business Sense - Government Whistleblower - Gift of Political Contribution
May 26, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us this week on Capital Thinking with host Kevin O'Neill as we are first joined by Stephen Owen and Andrew Auchincloss to discuss the expertise of Bernstein Global Wealth Management and the strategic role it could play in the successful sale of a private business. Thomas Tamm joined the privy list of major whistleblowers after he leaked former President George W. Bush's warrant-less NSA surveillance to The New York Times. We'll hear from Jay Darden on the dismissal of, and the implications therefrom, the criminal investigation against Tamm by the Department of Justice. Finally, we hear from George Schutzer with regard to a recent announcement by the IRS revealing its examination of contributions made to 501(c)(4) organizations, which include grassroots lobbying groups, and whether these contributions should have been taxed as gifts.
